Historical Information

The ancient custom of cremation instead of burial has been increasingly followed since the early part of the 20th century, and when desired this last rite was accorded to sevicemen during the 1939-1945 War. In this crematorium are the ashes of two sailors and two airmen belonging to the Australian forces.
