Melbourne Weather Causing Issues at Cemetery
Please take care when visiting the cemetery. Safety is our number one concern.
This year Victoria has been experiencing above-average rainfall. As such it has been extremely difficult to maintain our cemetery grounds to the standards you expect. The rain and unpredictability affect our gardening program, our monument footing schedule, and all aspects of our cemetery management.
Please recognise that we are doing our best to ensure the important work we do for the community continues as quickly and smoothly as possible. Some areas of the cemetery may be more affected than others and some areas may simply be inaccessible.
Thank you for your understanding as we work together with mother nature to ensure our cemetery looks cared for.
