The Gatton Cemetery will soon sport a suite of new upgrades which will add value to the way the community honour and reflect their loved ones.
 
Funded by the Queensland Government’s Unite and Recover Community Stimulus Program, improvement works have commenced which include a new brick columbarium wall as well as additional seating and blinds in the chapel.
 
Lockyer Valley Mayor, Cr Tanya Milligan said the region’s cemeteries hold deep significance and these upgrades will enhance the way the community utilises the facility.
 
“Lockyer Valley Cemeteries are deeply personal and sensitive locations where our community gathers to honour and reflect their loved ones in a peaceful and private setting,” Mayor Milligan said.
 
“The Gatton Cemetery plays an important role in bringing families together and theses upgrades will provide additional comfort during the burial and memorial process.
 
“The columbarium wall will serve as a lasting legacy and will give families a place to remember and reflect both now and in the future, while the additional seating and blinds will add another layer of comfort for families during their deeply personal journeys.”
 
The upgrades come off the back of other significant maintenance works completed at Council Cemeteries in recent months, including the renewal of concrete seam strips to improve the stability of headstones and a new water bubbler.
