Andersons Creek Cemetery first opened in 1858 and is one of the oldest cemeteries in Victoria.
It was originally a monumental cemetery but in recent years it has been expanded with a lawn and bushland theme. The cemetery has strong links with its pioneer past and much has been done to preserve old graves and headstones. Many cemetery records were lost in the 1939 Black Friday bushfires, but a monument at the front gate records those buried in unmarked graves.
Andersons Creek Cemetery provides for both lawn graves and cremated remains memorials. A standard grave accommodates two (2) interments. There is also a special area of the set aside for the burial of young children.
Full monumental (non-lawn) graves or Mausoleum Crypts are available at Lilydale Memorial Park.
