Information on placing memorials

What are the memorials about?

Gippsland Funeral Services understands the special need of families to memorialise their loved ones.

Traditional physical memorials frequently don't suit modern families who often live in different locations. The internet offers a unique way of providing a memorial that is accessible across town, across the state and even across the world.

Gippsland Funeral Services has made available space on this web site for families to memorialise their loved ones. This service is available to families who entrusted the care of their loved one to Gippsland Funeral Services at any stage since the firm started in 1932. The standard memorial is complimentary to these families with extra charges only applying to additional options.

What does the Complimentary Standard Memorial include?

The wording of the memorial is up to you. Many families choose to have wording similar to the following:

Herbert John Citizen
01 January 1901 to 18 February 1988
Loved Husband of Julie, Father of Fred, Janet and Samantha and Dear Poppy of Jason, Charlie, Zambuca and Fae.
At Rest

Up to 50 words are included in the complimentary standard memorial (1000 words if text provided electronically) along with a photo. The photo will be re-sized to the standard size (max 300 by 300 pixels) used on the website.

Additional objects such as extra words, extra photos and alterations to existing memorials will be charged according to our current rates.

What is the cost?

The standard memorial of up to 50 words (1000 words if text provided electronically) and one photo is complimentary to memorialise those people where Gippsland Funeral Services was entrusted with the funeral arrangements.

Additional words over the standard allowance - $10 per 50 words.

Additional photos and graphics - $10 each

All prices include GST
