Following strong winds and extremely gusty conditions recently, many vases and unauthorised items on graves were damaged and the cleanup of broken glass and ceramics by staff is ongoing.

It is Canberra Cemeteries’ policy that, in the interests of staff and public safety, only items made of unbreakable materials may be placed on graves. Staff are required  to remove items that may pose a threat to themselves or the public, particularly those that are broken or are on the lawn.
Glass, china or ceramic objects may be removed without notice.

We respectfully encourage visitors not to leave items of sentimental or monetary value in such a public place due to occasional theft or damage.

Canberra's public cemeteries

Canberra's public cemeteries are administered by the ACT Public Cemeteries Authority, an independent, self-funded statutory authority, which reports to the ACT Government through the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services. The cemeteries are planned and managed to meet as many of the communities needs as possible.
