Expired Memorials

To ensure families are aware that the tenure of a memorial has expired and the options that are available for consideration, information on memorials due to be disestablished will be provided here.

On-site, expired tenure of memorials is indicated by an orange sticker. Families who note a sticker should contact SMCT to make further arrangements for the memorial.

Anyone wanting to check the status of a memorial can do so using our Deceased Search or speak to a Customer Support Consultant on (03) 8558 8299, or email enquiries@smct.org.au.

If you believe that you are the holder of the right of interment for a memorial that is expiring or has expired, and you would like to transfer the memorial to perpetuity (forever) or collect the cremated remains, please contact one of our Customer Support Consultants on (03) 8558 8299 or email enquiries@smct.org.au.
