Community representatives meet at Quang Duc Monastery

GMCT’s community advisory committee recently met at the Quang Duc Monastery in Fawkner and enjoyed a special tour of the grounds led by committee member and monastery abbot Senior Venerable Tang. The committee, which is currently seeking new members, plays a vital role in representing community interests and includes representatives of friends groups, religious and cultural organisations and other community groups.

Volunteers help digitise historic records
GMCT recently held its first records digitisation working bee at Altona Memorial Park. A group of enthusiastic volunteers, aided by members of GMCT’s corporate information and records team, spent the afternoon preparing more than 1400 historical Williamstown Cemetery burial records for scanning as part of GMCT’s ongoing digitisation program.
Have you tried GMCT's new mapping search?
GMCT recently introduced a new mapping system that is now available to the public. The new system includes detailed maps of 16 cemeteries managed by GMCT, and can be accessed via the deceased search on our website. Users can search cemetery records with a simple name, burial or plot reference number search, and can view detailed cemetery layouts, including the position of all plots in real time.
Dying to Know Day at GMCT 

GMCT recently hosted a dynamic discussion about death as part of GMCT’s Dying to Know Day event at Fawkner Memorial Park. Members of the community toured an open mausoleum crypt at the Holy Angels Mausoleum and enjoyed afternoon tea in the Crick Chapel before a presentation on the cremation process from GMCT’s crematorium supervisor.
