  • Cemetery: Altona Memorial Park

17 January 2018

The statement below is attributable to The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust. 

GMCT deeply values the input of the community in making our parks cherished and meaningful places for everyone.

In recent days a community petition has been circulating in support of a name change to the children’s section at Altona Memorial Park.

We thank you for your feedback, passion and commitment to this very special place of reflection and remembrance.

GMCT is pleased to embrace the naming suggestion in the petition, ‘Garden of Little Angels’. We will now begin the process of changing the name and will provide updates and a timeline for the change in due course. 

Together we can continue to shape our cemeteries and memorial parks to reflect the hopes and needs of all members of our community.

GMCT hopes members of the community will continue to share their feedback on cemeteries and on the services provided by GMCT on Facebook or via GMCT's customer care team on 1300 022 298 or enquiries@gmct.com.au.
