Placing Cremated Remains in an Existing Grave

Most cemeteries permit the placing of cremated remains into an existing grave. This is done in conjunction with the relevant council cemetery, and the person who owns the grave.

Memorial Gardens

Most cemeteries have attractive commemorative areas in rose gardens, native shrub gardens, wall niches or other features. An inscribed plaque identifies the memorial position where the cremated remains have been placed. The memorial positions and plaques can be organised through the preferred cemetery.

Scattering Cremated Remains

The deceased may have expressed the wish for their cremated remains to be scattered somewhere that has significance for them and their family. Arrangements can be made to have cremated remains scattered as required.

Keeping Cremated Remains

A family may choose to keep the cremated remains for a couple of years. These can be kept in the urn provided or placed into a more decorative container. A wide variety of ceramic, timber and pottery urns are available.
