Forms are digitally available and can be accessed via the Canberra Memorial Parks website under the ‘forms and downloads’ tab.

Visitors are encouraged to stay at home and observe restrictions.


Canberra’s Public Cemeteries and Crematorium

Canberra’s public cemeteries and crematorium are administered by the Cemeteries and Crematoria Authority, an independent, self-funded statutory authority, which reports to the ACT Government through the Minister for City Services. The cemeteries are planned and managed to meet community needs.

Gungahlin Cemetery

The Gungahlin Cemetery was opened in 1979 and is extensively landscaped. A large lake and many bird species help create a tranquil and peaceful environment.

Hall Cemetery

Hall Cemetery is a small rural cemetery, mainly for the long time residents of the Hall Region. It is divided into religious denominations.

Woden Cemetery

The Woden Cemetery was opened in 1936. This formally planned cemetery features many stately mature trees and offers lawn and monumental burial sites in different religious and general areas.


Online Grave Search

Canberra Memorial Parks allows for an online search of the name and surname of deceased persons who are buried, interred or memorialised at Canberra Memorial Parks. This data is available through the ACT Government Open Data portal.
