Memorial options

There are three memorial gardens where cremated remains can be interred or scattered and memorials laid or dedicated:

There is also the Book of Remembrance Room, which holds the Book of Remembrance containing memorial entries.

Garden of Remembrance

This is an area where cremated remains can be are interred. It is adjacent to the main car park to the right of the crematorium driveway.

The garden is designed to create an atmosphere of peace and serenity. It includes a more formal area with initial pathways flanked by kerbs displaying bronze and granite memorial plaques. There are designated areas for memorial vases to be placed with the plaques.

The paths lead to a more informal area, with memorial trees and benches and a lawn where cremated remains are interred.

Garden of Reflection

This is an area where cremated remains can be scattered on a lawn area within the garden. The garden is situated to the left of the crematorium. 

The grass in the garden is allowed to grow naturally and will be sown with wild flowers. Cremated remains can also be placed by a memorial tree within a memorial vault. Granite memorial plaques can be purchased and positioned on a variety of memorials, including granite books and benches, a birdbath pedestal memorial and kerb memorials.

Please contact the crematorium office for more information.
