Your questions answered

What do I do if my cremated remains memorial is expired? 

GMCT is seeking to make contact with families whose cremated remains memorials have expired. 

In Victoria, cremated remains memorial plots can be purchased for a limited period of time (referred to as tenure). Expiry occurs when this period runs out. This does not apply to burial plots/graves which in Victoria are purchased in perpetuity (forever).

Our tenure team has been placing markers at cremated remains sites in the lead up to Father’s Day to assist with this process. The markers advise family members or visitors that the memorial plot is about to expire or has expired and ask family members to contact GMCT. If you are visiting a cremated remains memorial and observe a yellow stake, please contact our tenure team as soon as possible on 03 9355 3157.  

More information about GMCT’s tenure program is available here.
