Lawn Cemetery

Three sections are currently available for new graves at the Wagga Wagga Lawn Cemetery; sections Three, Eight and Ten.

While these sections are traditionally used for burials, the graves can also accommodate cremated remains, allowing family members with different needs to be together. Reservations are also available within the Lawn Cemetery. Each current section at the Wagga Lawn Cemetery has different memorial options to meet different cultural, religious and personal preferences.

Memorials are not included in the cost of burial or cremation and all memorial components must be ordered through the Cemetery office. Staff at the Cemetery are available to assist you in choosing the right memorial for your loved one.

Natural Burials

Natural Burials

In 2009 Wagga Wagga City Council endorsed a plan to include a Natural Burial Section at the Wagga Wagga Lawn Cemetery. This section was developed in 2012 and includes plant species endemic to the local area. A larger Natural Burials area will be located in the Stage 2 development at the Wagga Wagga Lawn Cemetery.

Natural burials are also accepted at the four rural cemeteries managed by Wagga Wagga City Council, Uranquinty, Humula, Tarcutta and Currawarna.

The main principal of natural burial is that the body (or cremated remains) is prepared for burial or interment without chemical preservatives and a simple shroud or biodegradable coffin is used. The body or remains are returned to the earth to decompose naturally.

In an attempt to keep the burial area as natural as possible there is no physical identification or memorial used at the site. Therefore there are no headstones, vases or flowers placed at the burial site. Accurate maps and plotting data is recorded to ensure that future generations are able to locate the place of burial.
