Cremation Memorial Options

After someone has been cremated there are a range of ways they can be memorialised within Great Southern Memorial Park's beautiful, secure and peaceful environment where cremated remains can be placed forever.

Scattering Ashes

Scattering the ashes of a loved one has become very popular in Australia. However, choosing the right location is important as a lasting memory in the future. Very often people choose to scatter ashes in a location that was special to their loved one, but over time such places may change or even be built upon, changing the location and with it the memory.

Creating a memorial in a special place helps keep the memory alive beyond the funeral service. Memorials give families and friends a tangible source of comfort, and are an everlasting place to come and remember your loved one. In a memorial park, ashes can be placed without fear of the location changing.

Cremation Memorials at Great Southern Memorial Park

Rose Garden Memorial

This is one of the most classic memorial types. Set underneath your choice of rose bush, these memorials are both eye-catching and elegant. Our rose gardens are meticulously cared for by our grounds staff to ensure that they look magnificent each and every year.

Garden Memorial

These are available in a variety of settings within the grounds. Garden memorials are set within beds that abound with colour. The gardens are tended throughout the year, ensuring colour which attracts native fauna.

Family Estate

With multiple placements these memorials are designed to be a personal garden, with your choice of plants, granite or bush rock construction and even finished with photos making it truly personalised to your family.

Creekside Memorial

These memorials are set amongst natural landscaped bush rock gardens within the park. Single positions and family estates are available.

Chair Estate

With its own chair for quiet reflection, a family chair estate memorial is the perfect place for multiple memorialisations to reflect on the life of loved ones. Personalisation through the selection of finish, plants and inscriptions is available.

Infant's and Childrens Memorial Garden

The memorial scattering garden is situated in the garden bed opposite the infant cemetery. A plaque may be included in this area in remembrance of your child. You can choose to place the plaque in one of three themed areas called Cherub Corner, Teddies Park and Fairy Forrest, each representing significant symbols of childhood. A donation is made to a children’s charity of our choice for each plaque that is placed in the memorial garden.
