About Us

Newcastle Memorial Park is the premier provider of burial and cremation memorial spaces in the Greater Newcastle area.


Established in 1936 and possessing 42 acres of serene gardens, lawns and landscaping, Newcastle Memorial Park is one of the largest, independently owned cemeteries in our region.

Conveniently located on Anderson Drive, near the junction of the M1 (F3) and John Renshaw Drive, Newcastle Memorial Park can be easily accessed by car.

Choice, professional maintenance, art-deco style and family connection; these are the reasons why families from across the Hunter choose to memorialise their loved ones at Newcastle Memorial Park.

Memorial Choices

Newcastle Memorial Park has the widest selection of burial and cremation memorials, so you can choose how to remember and honour a loved one.

We have lawn and headstone burials and cremation memorial options, to suit both individuals and families. We also have a range of peaceful, water-themed memorials and a Returned Services Wall so that members of Australia’s armed forces can be memorialised together and we have the Greater Newcastle area’s largest selection of cremation memorial options.

Newcastle Memorial Park also offers the opportunity for families to be memorialised together, through options like our cremation and burial family estates, finished in either bush rock or granite.

We are a non-denominational memorial park and can cater for all cultures and religions, and with over 42 acres of space, Newcastle Memorial Park has space for individual and family memorials for generations to come.

Professional maintenance

From the first time you visit Newcastle Memorial Park, you will witness just how visually stunning a modern cemetery can be.

Newcastle Memorial Park is a fresh flower only and a no-ornamentation memorial park. Our grounds feature a peaceful, open and natural setting that is maintained throughout the year by our team of qualified and experienced grounds staff.

All memorials within Newcastle Memorial Park receive perpetual maintenance.

Art-deco style

Architecturally-designed in the 1930s, Newcastle Memorial Park is a true product of its times, with its architectural significance and heritage features readily acknowledged by local historians and heritage groups.

Newcastle Memorial Park has ensured that as the years have passed, we have preserved the original splendour of our location, while updating our facilities from time to time, to include the latest technologies.

All care has been taken during refurbishment activities to retain the heritage and art-deco elements of our chapels, features that have become part of family memory for hundreds of families from the Greater Newcastle area.

Family Connection

Having served the City of Newcastle and the Hunter region for more than seventy-five years, almost every family will have a connection to us. We are also easily accessed, as we are conveniently located on Anderson Drive, near the junction of the M1 motorway and John Renshaw Drive. 

Our History

Newcastle Memorial Park is one of the largest and most beautiful independently-owned memorial spaces in the Hunter region.

Formerly used as farmland, in the 1930s, a consortium of local business people formed Cremations Newcastle, which had a vision of turning the Anderson Drive location into parkland suitable for cremation memorials.

In 2004 and to meet the needs of the communities we serve, Newcastle Memorial Park began offering lawn burials, and in 2013 headstone burials were also made available to families.

Originally designed to challenge the dour notions of what a cemetery looks like, Newcastle Memorial Park is a wide, open, light and airy space; a peaceful place set amongst a sprawling natural setting.

Compare us to other cemeteries in the area, which can be bewildering and crowded places, and you will see that Newcastle Memorial Park remains true to its original vision and sets a new standard for cemeteries in the area.
