Find out everything you need to know about memorials in the Crematorium and Lawn Cemetery by downloading the following booklets:
Cemetery Mapping Portal
The Wagga Wagga Cemetery Mapping Portal is a way for people to easily locate their deceased relatives within the cemetery controlled by the Wagga Wagga Council.
The Portal provides search capabilities, an overall map with pointer, as well as the abilities to zoom and pan around the map.
In addition to the Portal, there is a print-out available which can help relatives throughout the journey to (and around) the cemetery, making a visit to the cemetery less confusing. The print-out provides an overall map view with surrounding streets, a sectional view of the cemetery with inner-cemetery roads shown to allow the user the ability to find parking close to the grave, and finally a grave-area view which allows the user to see the surnames of surrounding grave-sites.
Please note the Cemetery Mapping Portal now supports mobile devices, including iPads, iPhones and Android devices.
Cemetery Mapping Portal User Guide
A user guide has been created to assist users with this changeover. Click here to download the user guide.

Guidelines for Graveside Memorials
at the Lawn Cemetery
Wagga Wagga City Council is asking for help to preserve the look and feel of the Cemetery that is enjoyed by many.
- Use only recommended memorial containers
- Memorial items that are not within the recommendations will be removed from 1 August 2011
Wagga Wagga City Council is responsible for the operation of the Lawn Cemetery and Crematorium, and takes great pride in ensuring the grounds remain a respectful resting place.
Visitors to Wagga Wagga's Lawn Cemetery and Crematorium are respectfully reminded of the guidelines in place for those wishing to commemorate the lives of loved ones who have passed.
To be kind to the environment and considerate to the many visitors and Council workers who maintain the grounds daily, the current Wagga Wagga Cemeteries Policy (POL 039) states that the most appropriate way of placing special items on memorials, is to use a recommended container.
To preserve the look and feel of the Cemetery that is enjoyed by so many, two flower containers are available to purchase from the Cemetery Office to be used on memorials - Aluminium Vase $50, Bronze Vase $184. Staff will then place/secure the vase/s in the appropriate position.
From Monday, 1 August 2011 Cemetery staff will remove and dispose of all non-standard containers, as well as statues, figurines and toys etc.
If residents wish to keep the items placed in memoriam that fall outside the guidelines, Council is requesting they be removed before this date.
