Is cremation the right choice?
In Victoria, cremation services are provided by cemetery trusts which operate strictly regulated crematoria. Our crematorium facilities and chapel are located at our Eaglehawk Cemetery.
Following a cremation, families may choose to honour their loved ones by memorialising their ashes at a cemetery or memorial park. The most common types of memorials involve the placement of ashes in a garden bed or memorial wall and the placement of a bronze plaque.
A wide range of memorial options are available, and—with the correct permission—ashes can also be interred in the grave of a loved one.
Alternatively, a family or loved one may request that the cemetery trust scatter the ashes on the cemetery’s grounds where the cremation occurred 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.
