Cremated Remains Options

Cremated remains can be interred in an existing earth grave or in one of our many specifically designed areas detailed below.

Memorial Gardens

These areas are specifically designed for the placement of cremated remains. Memorial Gardens are located in Gungahlin and Woden cemeteries. Cremated remains can be placed in the shrub beds or scattered in landscaped areas within the grounds. The plaque is placed on a raised beam in front of the shrub beds. A Memorial Garden is also available at Hall where the plaque is placed on the surrounding stone wall.

Liquidambar Lane

Opened in August 2013, this beautiful garden consists of granite receptacles designed for the placement of cremated remains. The remains are interred inside the granite and are sealed with the bronze memorial plaque.

Wall of Remembrance

The Wall of Remembrance is an impressive undercover structure which allows the placing of a plaque on a granite wall. The cremated remains may be placed in a vandal proof underground vault, in a small capsule behind the plaque or in a garden bed.

Memorial Rock Garden

Areas are provided for interment of cremated remains and/or the placement of a plaque on a rock. Many locations are available for the placement of rocks, subject to some conditions. For more information please contact the office.

Memorial Tree and Plaque

The bases of trees are offered for the placement of memorial plaques. In general, this will consist of a granite block at ground level, the plaque flush with the granite block. These may be purchased individually or in multiples.

Memorial Options

Memorials are a practical way of perpetuating precious memories and provide a focal point for families to share them with future generations. Canberra Memorial Parks offers a selection of choices to honour loved ones in a lasting and respectful way.

Dedication Seat

A Dedication Seat is a perpetual memorial featuring a personalised plaque. Positioned throughout the cemetery in sheltered positions, with landscaped surrounds, this memorial will be a focus of remembrance for generations. Payment includes a contribution to the maintenance of the seat in perpetuity.

Garden of Remembrance

Opened in November 2005, this garden consists of walls containing plaques to remember those fallen as a result of war. A memorial index is located on-site.
