Cemetry records go digital


Murray River Council has today launched a new digital platform for the management of local cemetery records.

Families and friends can now conduct historical enquiries in a live database where they can access cemetery records and informatio­n.

Mayor Chris Bilkey said this is an exciting improvemen­t to council’s memorialis­ation and burial services.

“Administra­tion of our cemeteries is a huge task undertaken by council staff, so the new online platform will significan­tly tidy up the creation and maintenanc­e of our records,” Cr Bilkey said.

“And even better, the software will now provide the community with real-time access to cemetery informatio­n and records via our website.”

The digital platform covers all six operationa­l cemeteries including Barham, Mathoura Lawn, Mathoura Pioneer, Moama, Moulamein and Tooleybuc.

It will assist with processing new sites, burial bookings, cremated remains interments, monumental works and customer enquiries.

You can search the platform via council’s website at www.murrayrive­ Our-Services/Cemetery-management.

If you have any concerns regarding any of the informatio­n displayed, please contact Council’s cemetery operations team on 1300 087 004.
