About Northern Cemeteries

Northern Cemeteries – is now Metropolitan Memorial Parks.

We provide places of reflection and are committed to serving the changing needs of our diverse communities by supporting people to grieve, celebrate life, and remember loved ones.  

Our parks offer sustainable and affordable interment options, crematoria, memorialisation, chapels and functions, through to history and recreational facilities.
