Rambally’s Funeral Parlour has offered to cover the cost of burial for Ikel ‘Marlon’ Emmanuel, the famous Facebook mock-reporter.

A source close to Emmanuel’s family told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that the funeral home would have normally charged $3,45 for the cheapest burial package.

“Rambally took care of the preparation of his body, coffin, and some other minor things,” the source said.

Despite the offer, the Emmanuel family are still in need of funds.

“She (Ikel’s mother) just needs about $2,000 to take care of the burial plot/public tomb ($1,840) and the fee for the minister to conduct the service ($100),” the source said.

Persons wishing to contribute financially to the funeral expenses, can make deposits at the National Workers Credit Union through the account number 4532706.

Emmanuel died at Victoria Hospital on July 1o at age 33.

His post mortem revealed that sepsis was the cause of death.

Researchers at Ohio State University Medical Center revealed that patients with alcoholism or alcohol withdrawal were at a higher risk of having sepsis and septic shock and were more likely to die during hospitalisation.

  1. I don't think the fee is for the preacher. Its merely for the use of the church. Its a church yes but bills still hv to get paid they will be using electricity during the ceremony plus the custodian have to get paid to clean before and after the service. So lets be realistic in opinion a $100 is a very small fee.

    • Pay church? What can the church do for him now to late Church, Priest, Preacher all have their own agender money. Do you have any idea how hard $100.00 is to cough up when you have no money zip nada. He's already dead he does not need all you talking about stop.

  4. Why would the Preacher wants a $100.00 to render his service for the decease? I thought the family is brokes so can he do it for free? I tell you it is all about the mighty dollar,to hell with the Preacher he cannot save him now,the last time I check preaching is free. Pulpit bandit lead by example.

  5. May sound insensitive but if rambally is already offering all that why can't the rest of the family come together and come up with the balance of the money. That seem to be becoming a trend in st.lucia now. Am not saying ppl can't help but come on its like they are depending on the public to bury him.
