Cemetery Improvements Continue.
Improvements across the Cootamundra –Gundagai Regional Council’s (CGRC) cemeteries has continued with the installation of new non-denominational beams at South Gundagai, Nangus, Coolac and Tumblong Cemeteries.
The new non-denominational beams offer another alternative to burial/interment in the monumental sections of each of these cemeteries.
The non-denominational beams, have a traditional type granite headstone and vases. The headstone is laser etched with personal inscriptions and can include pictures of a loved ones. The cost is far more economical than the traditional monumental works and the new beams include perpetual maintenance.
Seating and tree planting at North Gundagai Lawn, South Gundagai, Nangus, Coolac and Tumblong Cemeteries also has been installed by the Regulatory team, this will give people an opportunity to sit and reflect.
A mapping project, which involves many hours and resources continues and will eventually allow people to trace ancestor’s grave sights through the cemetery mapping applications.
CGRC will continue to make improvements across all cemeteries within the local government area.
