Live streaming is available for all funeral services in the following chapels: 

A link to the live-stream is provided with your booking confirmation. 

Cordell Chapel, Fawkner Memorial Park

The Cordell Chapel is currently unable to livestream. We are carrying out investigations and equipment trials to bring this service back online as soon as possible. In the meantime, funeral directors are welcome to arrange external providers to attend and deliver streaming services. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.

Extending live streaming services

Please note One Room Streaming can’t be extended within the last 15 minutes of a service. Up until this point, you can make extensions through the GMCT booking team.

Staying safe

Our priority is to ensure the safety of all those working across our sites, and the communities we serve.

WorkSafe exclusion zones

WorkSafe has introduced exclusion zones around machinery at all stages of operation. The regulation, which is already in effect, means we must place a protective physical barrier around machinery before operation commences so that the public is kept at a safe distance.

To help us keep our community safe, please ensure everyone stays behind the exclusion barrier surrounding any machinery at our sites.

Environmentally friendly tributes

We are committed to helping communities say goodbye to loved ones in the best way possible, while protecting the environment.

That’s why it’s important to be aware releasing balloons into the environment is not permitted under the Environment Protection Act. Individuals and/or companies who do so can receive a significant fine or penalty.

If you have clients wanting to incorporate balloons into a tribute, the EPA website lists a range of alternatives that you can share.

We also encourage you to share this information with other relevant team members and stakeholders. For more information, visit https://www.epa.vic.gov.au/balloons.

Transfer of right of interment

As per the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act 2003, where the right of interment holder is deceased, a right of interment must be updated before memorialisation can be confirmed.

GMCT does not charge a fee to transfer right of interment and we will work with the family throughout the process.
