COVID-19 Update

Our cemeteries are still open to visitors, for those who wish to visit their loved one’s grave or memorial. Canberra Memorial Parks is committed to providing excellent customer service and is operating by phone and email until further notice. Families are encouraged to access these services by phone or online as all necessary arrangements can be made without face-to-face contact.

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

Families can still hold funerals and burial services in the ACT, following the guidelines of social distancing and with limited numbers indoors. Some chapels are still operating but at reduced capacity. Some facilities can stream services, however, families are encouraged to consider holding the memorial service at a later date, after the burial or cremation. Religious places of worship will be considered on a case by case basis in consultation with the Funeral Director and the Religious leader.

To continue to provide a safe environment for visitors and our team, we encourage everyone to take the recommended precautions, such as social distancing and good hygiene, to protect their health and that of others.

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact our Customer Service team on (02) 6207 0000 or cemeteries@act.gov.au.
