Community members are invited to register their interest in new plots to become available as part of a series of major infrastructure projects at our cemeteries and memorial parks.

These projects will include the construction of new graves and mausoleum crypts to meet community need for cemetery space in metropolitan Melbourne. 

GMCT’s goal is to provide a meaningful, sustainable and diverse range of end of life options for you - our families and communities. Our cemeteries and our services are for everyone, and our process for the release of new graves is designed to provide fair and equitable access to all.

By following the steps below to register your interest, you will ensure you have first opportunity to secure your preferred position when new positions are released.

Registration process

  1. Register on the expression of interest list.

Registering your details on the expression of interest list will provide you with the earliest opportunity to secure newly-available plots at GMCT cemeteries and memorial parks.

To register an expression of interest, please contact GMCT on 1300 022 298 or email enquiries@gmct.com.au.

When registering your expression of interest, please provide us with as much information as you can about your preferences. This will allow us to direct you to the most suitable options for you and your family. 

  1. GMCT will contact you when plots become available for purchase.

For some grave releases, invitation-only presale events will be held for those who have pre-registered. These events offer community members an exclusive first chance to purchase before plots become available on the open market.

Those on the expression of interest list will be allocated presale invitations on a first-come, first-serve basis, based on the date of registration.

The release of new plots may be staggered in stages. The time at which you are contacted by GMCT may depend on the type of plot you wish to purchase, the number of plots you require, adjacency or other location-specific requirements, or the availability of plots for pre-purchase.

In some cases, GMCT may need to reserve plots for immediate at-need use, reducing the quantity available to the community to purchase in advance.  

  1. Update your personal details

Once you have registered your details on the expression of interest list, you do not need to re-register for future stages. Please keep your personal details updated and GMCT will make contact if and when plots become available as part of future releases. 

Updates on our infrastructure projects may be found here.
