New grave options now available - Keilor Cemetery

Plots in the new section of Keilor Cemetery are being released for sale in stages.

Initially, graves in each stage will be sold at invitation-only sales days for those who have preregistered on our expression of interest list. This will be followed by a general public release of the remaining graves in each stage.  

Stage one

Expressions of interest for the presale of stage one graves are now closed.

Public release of stage one graves is expected to commence from 1 November 2017. 

Stage two

You can now register your interest in stage two of the development.  Stage two graves are scheduled to be released for invitation-only presale in early 2018 (date to be confirmed).

The stage two release is expected to include additional monumental graves, cremated remains memorials, lawn beam (plaque) and concrete lined vaults. Final stock types will be confirmed in advance of presales. 

To register your expression of interest for the stage two release and presale event, please contact GMCT on 1300 022 298 or email enquiries@gmct.com.au. Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you with any questions you have.

About the Keilor Cemetery extension

The extension is a major 3.7 hectare expansion of the existing Keilor Cemetery, on land north of Ely Court, Keilor East.

The extension complements the existing character of historic Keilor Cemetery, established in 1856. It will provide the local community with a tranquil space to remember loved ones, including beautiful landscaping and a community meeting space designed by prominent Melbourne landscape architecture firm Urban Initiatives.
