Important COVID-19 information

Looking after the health and safety of our communities.

Thank you

We're closely monitoring the latest advice from the Department of Health, and doing everything we can to keep you and your families safe.


We're here for you

We know this is an extraordinarily difficult time, particularly for those who have lost a loved one during the pandemic. We are committed to supporting the individuals, families and communities who need us.

We have a range of resources to help those who may be struggling with grief and loss during this time. For those who are unable to visit, we are providing contactless flower delivery service.

Our cemeteries and memorial parks are open for essential services including funerals and essential appointments. 


Funeral attendance

  • Masks are required indoors, including indoor services, for all people over the age of eight (8) unless a lawful exception applies. When outdoors, masks should be carried and worn when social distancing of 1.5 metres is not possible.

  • There are no longer any funeral attendance limits for indoor or outdoor services or density quotients.

  • Mourners must still check-in with the Service Victoria QR code at each venue they attend.

  • Mourners attending post-service functions will need to by fully vaccinated or exempt in order to enter any of our hospitality venues (anywhere food and drink is served.) Vaccination status will be checked upon entry to these venues.

  • Hospitality venues are now subject to a density quotient of one (1) person per two (2) square metres. This quotient will apply to any venue where food and drink are served. Please note, these caps do not apply to funeral services.


Cafe and catering services

The Fawkner Memorial Park Tearooms are now open. You must be fully vaccinated to enter hospitality venues (anywhere food and drink is served.) Vaccination status will be checked upon entry.

If attending an indoor post-service function, attendees over the age of eight (8) must wear a mask except when eating or drinking. A density quotient of one (1) person per two (2) square metres will apply in hospitality or function venues, anywhere food and drink are served.

We will continue to update this page as we learn more for the communities we serve. Please visit the Victorian Government Coronavirus website for the latest information.
