New lawn beam and monumental burial sites are still available at Bald Hills Cemetery which allow for two to three burials as well as ashes interment in the grave. When checking costs, please refer to 'Historical monumental and lawn grave'.

Burials in existing family graves may also be available, where the grave still has space or the last burial was more than 30 years ago. Family grave re-use is only available to direct descendants of the people already buried in the grave or those related to the burial right holder. Download family grave re-use application forms.

New graves can be pre-purchased at today's prices or purchased as required.

Locating graves

Bald Hills Cemetery is managed by Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery.

The practice of marking numbers on gravestones was not introduced until the late 1900's. As most of the graves at Bald Hills Cemetery are quite old, the majority of headstones do not have numbers marked on them. This can make finding graves at Bald Hills Cemetery difficult. It is recommended that you contact the Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery office by email to request a map, stating the name of the deceased and the grave location.
