Fourth Community Mausoleum Opening

Geelong Cemeteries Trust has officially opened its fourth community mausoleum.

The opening was held in the grounds of Geelong Eastern Cemetery on Monday 20 May. The new mausoleum building meets the growing needs of the community and offers a traditional, cultural and significant resting place.

Completed over 11 months, the new space provides 105 crypts and is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens and walkways, offering visitors a quiet environment for reflection.

The building is designed by award-winning architecture and interior design practice, Harmer Architecture, and draws on the existing three mausolea, characterised by light-filled galleries and elegant finishes using the highest quality materials. All trades and consultants were Victorian based with many from the Geelong region. Geelong Cemeteries Trust staff also played a pivotal role in the construction and landscaping.

Each mausoleum stands as a unique building, distinguished by details such as unique stone, Italian bronze statues and chandeliers of coloured glass.

Crypts are available to be pre-purchased, with options to suit all families. For more information or to Plan Ahead, contact our friendly client services team on on 5249 3939 or

Geelong Cemeteries Trust invites all to attend the community opening of the fourth mausoleum at Geelong Eastern Cemetery, on Wednesday 19 June at 11.00am. St Mary’s Parish Priest Father James Clarke will perform a blessing.
