Artificial flowers will be removed once they, in the opinion of the cemetery staff, show signs of fading, deterioration or damage.

For more information about flowers, contact Ipswich Cemeteries.

Ornaments

No ornaments, garden edging or other materials are permitted to be placed on the grave or garden.

Cemetery staff will remove these and hold for collection for two months.

Special nursery baskets are available for purchase - these allow the placement of memorial items at infant graves without contravening relevant cemetery rules.Nursery baskets are not allowed within the adult cemetery.

For more information on ornaments, contact Ipswich Cemeteries.

Plaques

A large range of cast bronze plaques and granite headstones is available for viewing and purchase at Warrill Park Lawn Cemetery.

The placement of ceramic-backed photographs on lawn plaques is not recommended as they are brittle and not designed for this purpose.

If you choose to place a ceramic photo on a lawn plaque all care will be taken with it - however, Ipswich Cemeteries takes no responsibility for any damage to the plaque. With the exeception of the Melaleuca Walk Area at Warrill Park Cemetery, plaques provided by other suppliers can be placed, however a permit will be required from Ipswich Cemeteries.

Cast Bronze Plaques

Standard designs are available at reasonable prices, however a cast bronze plaque can be individually tailored to suit. Many shapes, colours and styles are available. A plaque specialist is on site at Ipswich Cemeteries and available by appointment to assist you with these designs.

Granite flat bases or granite sloping desks can have a bronze plaque placed on them. They can also have an inscription sandblasted engraved into the granite or laser etched into the granite surface. Both styles are individually designed to suit.

A memorial display garden and display room are available for customers at the Administration Building at Warrill Park Lawn Cemetery. It is recommended to make an appointment to ensure there is someone available to assist you. Contact Ipswich Cemeteries for more information.
