Since the Geelong Cemeteries Trust (the Trust) commenced the responsibilities at the Warncoort Cemetery late 2014, the toilet block has been re-commissioned and fully renovated, the front entrance upgraded, a lawn burial section established at the rear of the cemetery and the planting of trees and shrubs along the south boundary.
The Trust has also contracted surveyors to replot the entire cemetery to provide new plans as well as incorporate the data into the electronic burial system that is currently used by the Trust. Once these plans are complete and all known records verified, a deceased search function will be available for this cemetery on our website along with all our other cemeteries where the public can research burial records and print location maps.
A Master Plan has also been created that scopes out the future works of this cemetery, including the cemetery extension into the adjacent paddock. This Master Plan includes road extensions to mirror image the existing roads, rose gardens, numerous lawn burial sections, a dry creek bed incorporating cremation memorials and pedestrian bridges as well as full boundary tree and shrub plantings.
