Graves, Crypts and Cremation
Our Special Areas
Honour and celebrate your loved one with an everlasting tribute in the Books of Remembrance at Springvale Botanical Cemetery and Bunurong Memorial Park.
We offer a range of cremation and scatter options, including the Books of Remembrance within our dedicated scatter gardens at Springvale Botanical Cemetery and Bunurong Memorial Park.
The Books of Remembrance offer personalised calligraphy inscriptions designed by gifted artists on high quality parchment paper displayed in a large leatherbound book only handled with special gloves.
The Books are securely displayed in locked glass cabinets in Springvale Botanical Cemetery’s Garden of No Distant Place, and Bunurong Memorial Park’s Four Winds garden.
Garden of No Distant Place is set within the grounds of Springvale Botanical Cemetery, inspired by the four seasons throughout the year - Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. Located between the Avenue of Roses and North Drive, it is a picturesque scene to scatter the ashes of a loved one and reflect.
Four Winds is set in a beautiful scenic, native garden within the grounds of Bunurong Memorial Park. The Book of the Remembrance is stored inside the contemporary, modern pavilion overlooking the garden is a perfect place to reminisce the memories of a loved one.
The glass pavilions can be accessed by the public during opening hours and can hold up to 10 people.
