Just as important, is having a memorial where you can go to remember your loved one for years to come. Gore Hill cemetery offers a range of memorial options to suit you and a loved one.Planning a Funeral
Many families choose to benefit by planning ahead and securing positions at today’s prices in a not-for-profit, community-driven, Gore Hill cemetery. This gives them peace of mind knowing that their wishes will be honoured and family members will be saved from making difficult decisions at an emotional time.Pre-arranging a funeral
history and facts
Gore Hill Memorial Cemetery is one of the oldest and largest remaining cemeteries in metropolitan Sydney and is currently administered by Northern Cemeteries.
The Friends of Gore Hill Cemetery was established shortly after the announcement was made in 1975 by the government of the day, that the Gore Hill Memorial Cemetery was to be demolished and the land dedicated as a public park.
A public meeting was held in September of that year to gauge the level of support that existed to mount an opposition to the proposal. The decision of the meeting was overwhelming in its own desire to oppose the planned destruction of the cemetery and a steering committee was elected. The committee was charged with the primary objective of formulating a strategy and plan of management that would see the cemetery remain in its current form.
