Memorial plaques

A variety of bronze and stainless steel plaques can be ordered through the City of Gold Coast for burial and ashes memorial sites. Contact Cemeteries Administration for assistance in viewing the range of memorial plaques available.

Included in the base price of a memorial plaque is installation on a concrete base with the exception of the infants area at Southport Lawn Cemetery. Alternatively, plaques in lawn burial sections can be installed onto a granite base at an additional cost. Several colours are available.

The City may grant a request to install a memorial tablet in a lawn cemetery if it complies with the prescribed standards outlined in the City's Local Law No.13 (Cemeteries).

The relevant application form should be completed and forwarded to the City for approval together with the associated fee.
