We manage 7 cemeteries situated in some of the Coffs Coast’s most beautiful locations, providing peaceful and respectful surrounds.
When delivering services to our community we ensure:
All funerals must be arranged through a Funeral Director who will then contact us to make all the necessary arrangements.
Types of burials
We offer burials in 2 lawn cemeteries and monumental cemeteries.
Full Monumental Grave: the whole grave can be covered with a monument made from various materials such as marble, granite, sandstone, concrete etc. The type, style and size are subject to the rules and regulations of Coffs Harbour City Council.
Lawn Graves: Lawn burial with a plaque that’s placed at the head of the grave placed on a concrete plinth.
Coffs Harbour Historical, Woolgoolga Monumental, Coramba Cemetery, Bucca Cemetery and Corindi Cemetery all have monumental headstones.
Headstones for graves in monumental areas or historical cemeteries can be arranged through an authorised monumental stonemason. The monumental stonemason you select will advise you on the timeframe and apply through Council for the permit to construct the headstone.
Coffs Harbour Lawn Cemetery and Woolgoolga Lawn Cemetery have lawn sections. Bronze memorial plaques are mounted on a concrete base and installed directly onto the lawn at the head of the grave. A single bronze lawn plaque is included with a first interment. Reopening a grave for a second interment will include a detachable plaque.
Plaques can be ordered through us and we can help you choose from the designs available including an extensive library of motifs, emblems, borders and badges. Optional extras are available such as ceramic photo tiles, extra motifs, lines etc.
Delivery time for bronze plaques is approximately 4 to 6 weeks for completion and placement on the grave.
