> Why should I pre-purchase?

Many families choose to benefit from planning ahead for cremations, burials and memorialisation. Selecting and organising your final resting place ahead of time can provide great comfort in knowing that your final wishes will be carried out, and that loved ones will not be burdened with tough decisions during a particularly vulnerable time.
Advantages of planning ahead at Ballarat General Cemeteries include:

  • Protection against future price increases. You pay today’s price, regardless of when the service will be required.
  • Pre-purchasing provides the opportunity to secure a desired location so that memorials of family members may be positioned together.
  • Family members are not burdened financially. When decisions are made in advance, there is nothing more to pay and no ongoing fees.

•You have the ability to cancel in the future if you change your mind. Under the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act of 2003, the holder of an unexercised Right of Internment may surrender to Right of Internment to the Cemetery Trust, and a refund of the current fee, less administration and maintenance costs, will be made.

Ballarat General Cemeteries’ staff are available to help you with this important and personal decision. If you would like an obligation free appointment to discuss options available, please call 5332 1469.
