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

Locating 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 run in sequential order.

As the monumental area is quite old, not all monuments are numbered. This practice was introduced in the late 1900's. 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 details 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.
