Burial options

New monumental burial sites are still available at Lutwyche Cemetery which allow for two burials as well as ashes interment in the 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.

Lutwyche Cemetery is managed by Pinnaroo Cemetery. To view available burial options, request an appointment by email. As there is no office at Lutwyche Cemetery, an officer from Pinnaroo will meet you on site.

Locating graves

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