Burial

At Centennial Park, funeral services, burial, and memorial sites are much more than final goodbyes. Together they create a valuable emotional anchor point; a comfortable soothing place for family and friends to return and reflect on a life, and its place in their hearts.

Respecting South Australia’s diverse cultural landscape, we offer families a wide variety of burial options to choose from areas that accommodate specific religious requirements. All are situated within the tranquil surrounds of our Park, ensuring a uniquely peaceful atmosphere, and a fitting testimony to the lives of those held dear.

South Australia is a society made up of many cultures with specific burial needs. We offer many burial options which accommodate various religious requirements such as;

  • Bahai,
  • Catholic,
  • Druses,
  • Jewish,
  • Lutheran,
  • Maronite,
  • Muslim,
  • Orthodox.

We also offer several burial lawns which are fully irrigated throughout the year.   If your preference is for a burial vault instead of an earth burial, Centennial Park can also provide families with both single and double depth concrete vaults within designated areas of the cemetery.

For a full list of burial options available at Centennial Park, please see below.
