Keilor Cemetery opened in 1856, with the first burial taking place in April 1856. Back then it was the final resting place for pioneers of the growing colony and for those travelling to the gold-fields of Ballarat and Bendigo. Keilor Cemetery is located just 20 minutes from the centre of Melbourne.

Keilor Cemetery Expansion

The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust remains committed to providing burial options for the communities in and around Keilor. In 2014 we commenced planning for a 3.7 hectare expansion of the cemetery to the north of Ely Court.

This is a major initiative for the GMCT and will extend the capacity of Keilor Cemetery for approximately 10 years. For any enquiries related to securing a position in  the Keilor Cemetery Ely Court Development please email us or phone 1300 022 298.
