Please note: Announcement from the Friends of Gore Hill Cemetery
The Friends are having two meetings which we would like you to know about.
The first is the committee meeting, which people from Northern Cemeteries do attend, it is set down for Friday 3rd December at 10.30 am in the Robing Room.
The second is the Annual General Meeting which is set down for Sunday 19th December at 10.30am in the Robing Room. This is usually just for the Friends.
One item which we will discuss is the notice from the Clean Up Australia Group to take part in the clean-up for 2022. This we of course have done in previous years. It is no reflection on the state of the Cemetery, but it enables people to get to know the Cemetery.
We will ask for double vaccination certificates for both events.
Gore Hill Memorial Cemetery is one of the oldest and largest remaining cemeteries in metropolitan Sydney. Located in St Leonards the cemetery occupies an area of 5.81 hectares and was originally laid out as a formal Victorian/Edwardian garden.

Saint Mary MacKillop Ash Wall
This secluded area offers a peaceful location for quiet prayer and reflection. It features a memorial wall of cast aluminium plates depicting the life and work of Saint Mary MacKillop.The memorial wall provides a unique, dignified and respectful place for the interment of ashes.
The cemetery provides a memorial garden wall along the carriageway where a plaque can be placed to memorialise your loved one. This is a lovely option for those who have scattered ashes elsewhere, but can be remembered in a beautiful heritage location.
