While bronze plaques can be purchased from any supplier, most people prefer to use the Cemetery staff to organize their plaque.

All it takes is a phone call, email or contact us via our website.

Stone memorials are supplied by stone masons.

Generally there are two types of plaques used in the Lawn Cemetery

Single plaques and Double plaque. Single plaques are used where there is just going to be one Interment in a grave.

The double plaque is used where there is likely to be a second interment   at a later date. The existing name plate is moved to one side and a second plate is added.

With all plaques there are many options  including borders, colours and motifs. The standard plaque comes with a raised border and coloured brown .

PLAQUE RECONDITIONING

Another service that the Trust offers is the refurbishment of plaques that are showing their age.

Plaques are removed and sent to a foundry and are completely reconditioned.

The reconditioned plaques look exactly like a new plaque. In fact the treatment they get is exactly the same as brand new plaques.

STONE MEMORIALS

New stone memorials in the monumental section of the Lawn Cemetery are supplied by stone masons and are organized directly by the right holder of the grave making direct contact with the masons.

The same applies to new memorials and repairs in the General Cemetery.

Sometimes people choose to use a bronze plaque and concrete base to mark an unmarked grave in the General Cemetery. These can be supplied by the trust.

As there are no monumental masons in Hamilton, the nearest ones are located in Portland and Warrnambool.
