Glenmorus Memorial Gardens

These peaceful gardens are set against beautiful bushland. With manicured lawns, shady trees and fragrant roses they offer a serene space in which to reflect in an atmosphere of healing, peace and remembrance.

We’re still here

As a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic, our office is closed for face-to-face meetings.

For urgent funeral matters, please call us on 02 6043 5655 or email ggardens@alburycity.nsw.gov.au

Under the current restrictions, we recommend only visiting the memorial gardens for essential purposes (i.e. attending a funeral, organising a funeral or grave).

Glenmorus and our other cemeteries will remain open and our cemetery team is observing social distancing measures to keep our locations as safe as possible for our community to honour and celebrate life.

We understand that this may be a difficult time for many, however, we have a shared responsibility to comply with the Australian Governments public health measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Latest Government information?

The maximum number of people who may attend a funeral is the maximum number of people allowed on the premises, which is one person per 4 square metres.

People attending the service will be required to supply their name and contact details so that they can be used for contact tracing.

What this means for us

What this means is that our Glenmorus chapel room can hold 34 people with the 4m2 rule.

For funeral guests unable to attend in person, live streaming might be a solution and should be discussed with your funeral director well in advance of the service. A recording of any service held in our Glenmorus chapel can be made available on a DVD to share with family and friends after the service. Please ensure your funeral director knows you would like this before the service begins.

Please note that social distancing measures still apply, and all attendees must maintain the required 1.5 metre minimum person-to-person spacing for outdoor services, and the four-square-metre per person minimum for indoor events.

Can I visit the grounds outside of attending a funeral?

Under the current restrictions, we recommend only travelling for essential purposes.

Some alternative ways to remember your loved ones while staying at home include lighting a candle or holding a virtual remembrance with family and friends. Social distancing measures still apply.

We are continuing to communicate changes with the Funeral Directors that work with us. They can guide you on arrangements and discuss options for your service.

Your questions about attending funerals, memorial services and wakes may have been answered by the NSW public health department.

Burial options

We understand how important it is for families to be able to create the most suitable and personalised memorial site. With this in mind, we offer the following burial options at Glenmorus Memorial Gardens.

Monumental Lawn

Overlooking the cemetery this hilltop burial area requires a full upright granite headstone with plaque (not included in price). You can choose the different style and colour of headstone within the cemeteries guidelines.

Section 11G Granite Wedge

Elevated manicured lawn area, requiring a granite wedge base and plaque.

General Lawn

Manicured lawn area of the gardens, requiring a concrete/granite base and plaque.

11C Lawn

Manicured lawn area of the gardens, requiring a concrete base and plaque.

Crematorium Chapel

The Crematorium Chapel is an alternative to the traditional church or funeral home setting. Located in the beautiful grounds of Glenmorus Memorial Gardens, it looks out on to the serene native bush of the surrounding hills.

The chapel has seating for 120 people, standing room for a further 30  people inside and space for another 50 in the covered outside area.

Facilities include:

  • a sound system (including CD player and iPod port) for background music
  • a laptop for PowerPoint or video tributes
  • an organ (please make prior arrangements for an organist)
  • recording of services onto DVD (please request this service in advance)
  • a kiosk outside the chapel with self-serve hot drinks

Memorialisation

A memorial is an enduring tribute to a person’s life. It provides comfort and support to families and friends as they reflect on the life that was, and a focal point for current and future generations to remember, pay their respects and celebrate those who have preceded them.

Our beautiful memorial gardens offer a serene environment in a tranquil bushland setting nestled into the surrounding hills. You can choose a resting place for your loved one in exquisitely manicured gardens, beside tranquil waterways or in natural parkland areas.

Memorial placement

Arrangements for the day of placement are entirely up to you. You can choose to hold a service in our chapel before the memorial placement. This can be a formal occasion with a minister/celebrant or a relaxed personal time to share memories. Or you can choose a formal or informal service at the memorial site itself.
