Memorial Gardens

Bunbury Crematorium and Memorial Gardens

A memorial plays an important role in the grieving process.

It forms a link between the past, present and future.

Memorials have evolved to provide a range of beautiful choices for families of those left behind and for future generations to come and visit. It is a place to reflect, and provides a tangible link to a life lived.

The Bunbury Cemetery Board provides a range of memorial options from which to choose. There are traditional style rose beds, together with a range of memorials surrounded by bushland, parkland, and water. All memorial options are available with or without the placement of ashes.

Bronze plaques used in memorials vary in size depending on the garden option chosen. The plaque and the inscription to a standard number of lines is included in the price of the memorial.

The Bunbury Cemetery Board is dedicated to creating and maintaining a place of tranquility and peace, not only for our departed loved ones, but also for those who visit and pay their respects. As our gardens continually grow and change, we recommend an onsite inspection before making your final decision.

Our consultant will work closely with you to assist  in your memorial selection and the plaque inscription.  Memorial plaques can include emblems, photographs, and perpetual flowers for an additional cost.

Please contact our friendly office staff for an appointment so we may assist you further with any information or guidance you may require.

Storage of cremated remains

The Bunbury Cemetery Board will retain cremated remains in safe custody for a reasonable, but limited time, to enable an unhurried decision to be made on the placement of ashes.

Flower & Ornament Policy

In order to maintain a high and uniform standard in the gardens, and given the increasingly large volume of floral and other tributes the Board has a strict policy on the placement of glass jars and figurines at memorial sites.

The placement of fresh and/or artificial flowers is allowed, but withered and weathered flowers will be removed.

Our team of dedicated gardeners provide a place of tranquillity and peace, not only for our deceased loved ones, but also for those who visit and pay their respects.
