Cornelian Bay Cemetery is located in the Hobart suburb of New Town and offers views across the River Derwent and across to Mount Wellington. There are a range of gardens, bushland settings, manicured lawns and other options available at this historic cemetery.
Memories are a precious gift from those we have loved and can be passed on to future generations. Often people find that a memorial provides a focus – a symbol of remembrance. Millingtons have a comprehensive range of memorial options for lawns, garden sites, feature gardens and niche walls.
Inscriptions on memorials can record information such as achievements and services, becoming a valuable historical record for future generations. Various sizes and designs are available to you with an extensive library of motifs, emblems, borders and badges. Traditionally, plaques have a brown lacquer finish but coloured options are available.
Garden memorials are set onto plinths and placed throughout the cemetery. Feel free to contact Millingtons to see our full range of memorials.
