Cemeteries remain open to visitors

Share Canberra's trusted news:

GUNGAHLIN, Woden and Hall cemeteries and the Norwood Park crematorium are still open for visitors who wish to visit their loved one’s grave or memorial, City Services has confirmed. 

Funeral services can still be held in the ACT, following the guidelines of social distancing and meeting internal gathering space requirements. Chapels and places of religious worship will be open on a case by case basis.

However, the Canberra Cemeteries head office is closed to the public and anyone needing to make any arrangements should call 6204 0200 or cemeteries@act.gov.au.

City Services says for ACT residents who have a death in the family, most necessary arrangements with funeral directors, cemeteries and the crematorium can be made over the phone and online. Forms are digitally available and can be accessed via the Canberra Cemeteries website under the “forms and downloads” tab.
