What is a Memorial?
A memorial is an enduring tribute to a person who has died. It provides tangible evidence of a life lived, and a sense of focus for the bereaved to remember and reflect.
A memorial plays an important role in the grieving process. It forms a link between the past, present and future, helping to unify families and generations.
Every cemetery managed by the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board offers a variety of memorial options. Memorials have been developed to ensure that there is a wide range of both traditional and innovative memorial options to suitably commemorate a life.
This website provides a brief introduction to our memorials. For more detailed information please contact our Client Services staff to request a copy of the Memorials: Celebrating Lives Lived information guide.
