By engaging, listening and working with you, we aim to understand your needs, concerns and aspirations. This helps us provide the very best service we can.

We support around 12,500 families a year, drawn from a range of multicultural and multi-faith communities across the greater Melbourne region.

Every family we work with, every visitor we welcome, and every person we provide with final care and a peaceful resting place is connected in some way to a local community.

How we connect

In order to reach our diverse communities, we need to approach them in a variety of ways. That might mean meeting face-to-face, through presentations or meetings, via media releases, social media, or joining our online engagement community Your Say GMCT.

We work with volunteers and friends groups, employees and employee groups, stakeholders and business partners, local residents, customers and visitors, and continue to expand and strengthen our connections.

Have your say

We want to hear from you. View our open consultation projects below or have your say on a range of critical topics by joining our online community Your Say GMCT.

Get involved

Volunteering is a great way for people, regardless of their age, cultural background, location or circumstances, to get involved in the community and make a positive contribution to their local cemetery. Research shows that volunteering has many benefits to health and wellbeing, in addition to the feeling of satisfaction of helping others. Please contact the various community groups below if you would like to know more about volunteering at our cemeteries.

Friends groups
