About

Mr. Dennis Seymour Manager of Gippsland Memorial Park Traralgon Victoria since 2009 "People don’t just get buried…after death they are interred with love, honour and care, to rest eternally endowed in Nature’s abode"

Gippsland Memorial Park (GMP) incorporating Traralgon Cemetery has been in operation since 1969.

The not-for-profit cemetery and cremation business is located in Traralgon at the heart of Gippsland. Being 30 acres of beautiful gentle rolling gardens, crested on the North by the historic Old Bluff Monumental Cemetery of 1869.

Recognising the need for a natural burial area and ecological cremation service for the eastern side of Victoria, GMP opened its Natural Burial Ground "Whispering Gums" and began ecological cremations in 2016.

Dennis says "People don't just get buried....after death they are interred with love, honour and care to rest eternally in Nature's abode, their virtues and memories lingering in the hearts and minds of those they touched"

"An ecological/natural burial is a care option for those families wishing to experience the traditions of natural burial- a heartfelt, personal and humanistic interment that minimises harm to the environment"

"Our Whispering Gums" Ecological Burial Area maintains the beliefs of sustainability, giving back to the earth and connecting with Nature's harmonising touch". It features a majestic 400 year old yellow coastal box gum at its centre and she protects her earthbound children under wide arching branches that also provides shade for families that visit.

"Similarly, ecological cremation also places emphasis on Mother Earth and our customs. At GMP we recognise the need for some cultures to attain peace through using customs akin to the belief of the deceased and again the body is sent on its journey only clothed in natural fibres, natural cleaners, scented oils and raw timbers"

At GMP we are happy to assist and support the needs of ecological/natural burial and cremation.
