Dying to Know Day at GMCT 

On 8 August, GMCT is providing interested members of the community the opportunity to learn what happens “behind the scenes” at our cemeteries as part of Dying to Know Day, an annual day of action dedicated to bringing to life conversations and community actions around death, dying and bereavement. Free to attend, however pre-registration is essential.

Grief lecture - 'Remembering Sophie' 

18-month-old Sophie Schulz died in 2009 after she became caught underneath a hydraulic massage table. Recently her parents spoke at a grief lecture to help others deal with grief and bereavement.

GMCT will be hosting All Souls' Day mass services in October and November. Services will be held at a number of GMCT cemeteries, including Fawkner, Lilydale and Altona Memorial Parks.

Please note: due to a significant increase in attendance over the years an online pre-registration system will be implemented. This will assist GMCT to manage the event and guest numbers. Further information will be posted shortly on our website, or email and we will ensure you receive further information.

At The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust we believe in caring for your loved ones with dignity and compassion. Each year, we help more than 11,000 families ­– of all cultures and faiths – to plan and prepare for funeral, cremation, interment and memorial services.
