Catering and reception facilities

The Hemmant Cemetery offers post-funeral catering and reception facilities.

Garden of Peace

The grounds contain an area dedicated to infants and babies. This area features a small outdoor shelter for use as a chapel or for funeral services.

Locating graves and ashes memorial sites

Lawn graves and ashes memorial sites are relatively easy to locate at Hemmant Cemetery. The allotment number is marked on the bottom right hand side of most plaques and numbers run in sequential order.

As the monument area is quite old, not all monuments are numbered. Numbering was introduced in the late 1900s. Council recommends you visit the cemetery during office hours for assistance and directions. Alternatively, contact the office by email to request a map. State the grave location detail, including the name of the deceased.

Not all graves have plaques or headstones. Keep this in mind when trying to locate a specific grave by number.
