The Garden of Remembrance at St George's stands as a witness to the Christian belief in the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and to our assurance that we share in that resurrection to eternal life. Provision has been made for the ashes of those who have died in that Faith to be interred in the Garden.
Relatives may have details of the life of the deceased recorded in a Book of Memory which is kept in the archives. A yearly remembrance of the Departed is observed on the Sunday preceeding the anniversary of their death.
Ashes are interred rather than scattered. The Garden is a common grave and individual ashes are not coverable. The Prayer Book service is used for the occasion.
Fee: The fee for the interment of ashes and inscription in the Book of Memory is $220 (including GST)
A Certificate of Cremation is required before the ashes can be accepted.
