Children's Burial and Cremation
Special Burial and Cremation areas created especially for children.
Children's Lawn Burial
The Children's burial area is a special part of the park dedicated to children and decorated with touches of colour, with beautiful views over the nearby wetlands. This private space provides an intimate place for parents and family to visit.
Engraved children’s niche walls are now installed in the new Children’s Burial area, giving families the option of interring cremated remains of children if they wish. These are available for children aged 0-10 years.
For many parents and families, early pregnancy is filled with joyful anticipation and plans for the future. When tragedy falls before 20 weeks of gestation and babies are lost, feelings of grief and loss are hard to express. Families often do not know where to turn for help in regards to cremation.
Through Funeral Directors Gippsland Memorial Park offers services of cremation for pre-20 week babies. This service is free-of-charge to support the family’s welfare and help improve their quality of care after loss. The cremation is handled with the same care and consideration that Gippsland Memorial Park is renowned for. The ashes are returned to families in a beautiful tiny pearlised urn complete with presentation box and cremation card recognising the cremation and acknowledging the loss the family has suffered. A gift of care for them to treasure forever.
