New crematorium at Gungahlin cemetery now operational

A new publicly run crematorium is now operational at the Gungahlin cemetery.

The cremator was sourced from Austeng, an engineering firm that specialises in building crematorium equipment in Australia. The cremator is a bariatric model which is able to accommodate oversize, larger and heavier coffins.

It has been constructed in the central precinct of the cemetery to provide better accessibility for families including to the cemetery’s other facilities. Construction of the new facility has delivered not only a cremator and cremation facility, but also viewing rooms which meet the cultural and religious needs of the diverse Canberra community.

Interim prices are currently in use and are based upon industry benchmarking and have been noted by the Independent Competition and Regulatory Commission. A final pricing schedule is expected to be available in the coming months.
