About our cemeteries

We look after the Wonthaggi and San Remo Cemeteries on behalf of the Victorian Government Department of Human Services.

Our responsibilities for these cemeteries include:

  • reservations, plaques
  • arranging the maintenance of cemetery grounds and preparation of graves
  • record keeping and reporting
  • provision of information from records to members of the public (in accordance with the Privacy Act)
  • planning for future cemetery needs

Both cemeteries provide burials in either lawn or monumental sections, or the interment of ashes in a niche wall and memorial gardens.

Cemetery Records

If you would like more information about the burial of a family member, please be aware many records were kept on a voluntary basis in the past, so some records are not complete. Records from the San Remo Cemetery were also lost in a fire some years ago. There is also information that may not be available due to privacy requirements under the Cemeteries Act.

You can enquire via email at cemeteries@basscoast.vic.gov.au.
