Northern Memorial Park Expansion

The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust remains committed to providing Burial Options for the communities in the northern metrpolitan suburbs. In 2014 we commenced planning for a 58 hectare expansion of the cemetery to the north of the existing cemetery. Construction is expected to commence on the new site in the second half of 2015.

This is a major initiative for the GMCT and will extend the capacity of Northern Memorial Park for approximately 25 years. For any enquiries relating to the Northern Memorial Park Development please email us or phone 1300 022 298.
