After someone has been cremated there are a range of ways they can be memorialised within Mt.Thompson Memorial Gardens, a beautiful, secure and peaceful environment where cremated remains can be placed forever. Here family members and descendants can come and reflect and celebrate the life of the relative or friend.

Our memorial options range from a simple rose garden to a traditional wall niche, or a family memorial garden in our natural setting. Whatever your choice we can help you tailor the memorial to reflect the needs of each individual and family. You can view examples of the cremation memorial options in the photo gallery below.

Scattering Ashes

Scattering the ashes of a loved one has become very popular in Australia. However, choosing the right location is important as a lasting memory in the future. Very often people choose to scatter ashes in a location that was special to their loved one, but over time such places may change or even be built upon, changing the location and with it the memory.

Creating a memorial in a special place helps keep the memory alive beyond the funeral service. Memorials give families and friends a tangible source of comfort, and are an everlasting place to come and remember your loved one. In a memorial park, ashes can be placed without fear of the location changing.
