It was a sombre occasion as loved ones said their farewell to Cecil Arlington Jemmott.

But as he was a Retired Superintendent of the Royal Barbados Force, his ‘goodbye’ was not the regular mundane procession.


Churched and buried at St. Thomas Parish Church, Arch Hall, St. Thomas, the late Cecil Jemmott had a funeral service and burial befitting of his rank within the Force. Full military honors were afforded.

The Royal Barbados Police Force Band was present, the Heads of the Force were on hand and many officers of various ranks attended to pay tribute and give the former Superintendent a fitting send off after his years of commitment and service.

He leaves to mourn, his widow Felicita Jemmott, his children - Maureen, Harriett, Emmerson, Caswald, Euclid, Graydori and Hallam Jemmott, Cheryl Nicholls, Trevor Patrick, Clive Grant, Marcia Springer, Moreen Webster and Karen Worrell; his grandchildren - Danielle, Ashley and Osaze Jemmott, Janae, Annika, Liesel, Jewel and Mitchell Nicholls, Tamara Lashley and six others; as well as his siblings Irene and St. Elmo Jemmott, Clifford Maycock and the Livingstone Francis, and a slew of other relatives and close friends.

The late Justice of Peace was also well known in his Hillaby, St. Andrew community.

The funeral was yesterday, July 14, 2017.
