Cremation

Cremation is a popular choice, and the family has a number of options when it comes to collecting, scattering or memorialising the ashes.

Overview

Cremation services can be booked at one of our three modern crematorium facilities located at Altona Memorial Park, Fawkner Memorial Park and Lilydale Memorial Park. The funeral is usually held in one of our adjoining chapels, and a post-funeral function can be booked in one of our function rooms.

The cremation service may be arranged via your funeral director, or you can pre-purchase a cremation deed directly from GMCT.

Following a cremation service, the family can decide what to do with the ashes. Many families choose to create a memorial for their loved one at a cemetery or memorial park. A range of cremation memorials are available across our sites, and—with the right permission—ashes can also be interred in the grave of a loved one. A bronze plaque is often ordered to create a lasting memorial family and friends can visit to remember and reflect.

Alternatively, a family or loved one may request that the cemetery trust scatters the ashes in the grounds of the cemetery where the cremation took place, or at another of our cemeteries or memorial parks. Families may also wish to collect the ashes and keep them at home in an urn, or scatter them in a meaningful place.
