What it means to be buried at The Beechworth Cemetery
This is our community Cemetery
Lives are commemorated – deaths are recorded – families are reunited – memories are made tangible – and love is undisguised – This is our Cemetery.
Communities accord respect – families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are recorded and preserved to pay warm tribute of accomplishment and to the life – not the death – of a loved one. Our Cemetery is homeland for memories that are a sustained source of comfort to the living.
The Cemetery is a history of people – a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.
Our Cemetery exists because every life is worth living and remembering – always.
