As of Wednesday 1st February 2023, RPCV have ceased implementation of its current adornment policy.
The only items that will be removed from cemetery grounds by RPCV are those that are considered to pose the greatest risk to occupational health and safety.
Items which will be removed are:
  • Any items with a metal spike
  • Any items with a sharp edge
  • Alcohol
  • Broken objects
  • Glass objects
– Any glass containers/vases which are holding flowers will be replaced with plastic vases so that flowers, both artificial and fresh/dried can remain where they have been placed.
If you are unsure of any items which can be placed on a memorial site, please contact our office on 1300 266 561 or via email to
