Waverley Cemetery Memorialisation Wall

With a shortage of burial space across NSW, Council investigated ways to ensure Waverley Cemetery would remain a final resting place option for community members in the decades ahead. Memorialisation walls with ash interment niches have already proven popular along the northern side of the cemetery and there is strong demand for more of these.

Council is building 20 memorialisation walls parallel to the existing sandstone wall of Quinn Road. Each wall will contain 36 ash interment niches that people can lease long-term from Council.

The memorialisation walls are envisaged to be bespoke in design and a reflection of the heritage significance of the Cemetery, consistent with the late Victorian and Federation era headstones, monuments and other infrastructure.

The project will also include the installation of new benches and minor landscaping.
