Community Planning Service

Partnering with our community

At Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust, we are committed to providing ways to honour and celebrate life in the way that best serves our community. That’s why we have developed the Community Planning Service, to help community groups plan ahead together.

We are partnering with community leaders to discuss the needs of their community group in planning how members may rest together in the future. This includes memorials, grave customisation and other burial elements to help communities to be commemorated together.

At our Bunurong Memorial Park location, we are continuing to develop new areas providing community groups with the opportunity to have a custom built area for honouring life as a community. Our Springvale Botanical Cemetery location also has areas to explore, giving groups the option to choose the location and setting that best meets your needs.

Our team of consultants can help your community group by:

  • Creating customised memorials specifically for your community
  • Discussing burial options
  • Advising on the optimum number of memorials required
  • Creating areas that are aligned to important customs and traditions
  • Discussing any other community specific requirements

To learn more about our Community Planning Service and how we can partner with your community, please enter your details below or call Julie on 0417 140 066 to discuss the options available.

If you are a community group member and you feel this might be of interest to your community, please share this page with your community leaders - we’d love to explore more options with you.
