Cremation Memorials

At Centennial Park we understand how important memorials are as a symbolic place to share with family, friends and future generations. A memorial expresses our deepest thoughts and feelings about the life of family and friends and is a respectful testimony to the life of your loved one. We are very proud to provide tranquil personalised memorial spaces especially set aside for your loved one within our many serene gardens.

Contemplation Court - A Transitional Memorial Area

Without a physical place to visit, pause and reflect, people can often feel lost while grieving the loss of a loved one. This is why Centennial Park provides a transitional memorial area called Contemplation Court.
Contemplation Court plays an important role in the grieving process for families. It provides a peaceful and serene place that people can visit during the early stages of their grieving process as they come to terms with the loss of their loved one. Contemplation Court is a unique facility in South Australia that allows family, friends and community to visit loved ones for several months after cremation until final decisions are made.

Ultimately, a longer term memorial provides the final binding between the life and memories of the deceased with those of the living. Contemplation Court is a courtesy service provided to the families of those who have been cremated at Centennial Park.


Elevated within natural surroundings and offering a bold natural style, boulders vary both in size and shape. A memorial boulder can be finished with either a traditional bronze or modern glass plaque.
