  • Cemetery: Altona Memorial Park

The Trust would like to assure families that cremation and burial services at Altona and Williamstown have not been impacted by the recent industrial action. Staff have now returned to work following discussion between management and workers.

Additional casual staff brought in to help clean up the cemeteries following recent extreme weather conditions can now continue work.

The impact of recent rain on the level of vegetation at Altona and Williamstown has been high and exacerbated by a number of recent staff resignations. We are working to fill positions and bringing in extra temporary staff to ensure the cemeteries meet the standards of the families who have loved ones there.
