Cremated Remains / Memorialisation
In most instances disposal of the cremated remains is the responsibility of the authorised person (who signed the required documentation for the cremation). They may keep the cremated remains if they so wish or they may prefer to arrange a memorial.
Families are encouraged to create a memorial for their loved one and there are many options available within the Cemeteries administered by this Trust.
The Trust can offer memorialisation options that include niche wall placements, memorial lawn strewing, rose garden, native garden, tree, shrub or rock ground niche interments. Administration staff are more than willing to assist regarding enquiries and arrangements.
Memorialisation in the Book of Remembrance is also available. Entries are in finely drawn calligraphy and may also include detailed emblems. This book is displayed in a special memorial area in the Chapel entrance. Each day the entries for that date are on display or may be made available to view by appointment.
Your funeral director will be able to offer advice on other options you may wish to consider.
Clear instructions in writing should be given to the person who will be responsible for your funeral when you die. These instructions are not binding in law, unless written in your Will, so you should ensure that the person you instruct is someone who will carry out your wishes. The final decision rests with your executors.
For further information on creating a lasting memorial for your loved one/s in any of our cemeteries please contact the administration staff at Neangar Memorial Park, Eaglehawk on 03 5446 1566
