Lawn Cemetery

We are responsible for the management of 11 cemeteries located within our local government area. 



Each of our cemeteries has its own unique style and setting, all with general burial sections and some with denominational.

Gravesites may be marked with a headstone or plaque. All headstone work must be performed by a registered monumason.

Columbarium or Niche Walls

Columbarium walls (also known as Niche Walls) are for the placement of ashes into a wall setting. Ashes are placed into the niche receptacle and a memorial plaque is placed securely over the niche. 

Wall Niche sites are available for ash placement at Wauchope, Laurieton, Comboyne and Kendall cemeteries.

Ash placement

Ash may also be placed in a gravesite and some people choose to place more than one set of ashes into a site. 

For any inquiry about purchasing a site, or simply to discuss what options might be available to you, please contact our Cemeteries Team to discuss your options.
