From a stunning wildflower setting to a tranquil native woodland, the desire for a natural burial can be met at the Enfield Memorial Park or Smithfield Memorial Park.

A unique, environmentally sustainable option to more traditional practices, these places abound with colour and life, providing an ideal space for family and friends to gather and celebrate the life of a loved one.

Everyone will be remembered for something; their infectious laughter; the seeds of wisdom they scatter along the way; that deep, unconditional love they show family and friends. How we live and love today is how we’ll finally be remembered.

How will you be remembered?

Many people choose to place floral and other tributes at burial and memorial sites for personal, cultural and religious reasons. This practice is welcomed at Enfield Memorial Park, Cheltenham Cemetery, Smithfield Memorial Park and West Terrace Cemetery.

To ensure a safe and secure environment in which families can grieve as they choose, the Adelaide Cemeteries Authority has updated its tributes policy. These changes follow substantial community consultation and apply to all cemeteries under the Authority’s care.

These fair and equitable guidelines seek to address the wide ranging views of the community and will take effect from Thursday 1 September 2016. In the meantime, we ask that you please familiarise yourself with the revised policy by visiting www.aca.sa.gov.au.

As seen in the City Messenger today, did you know that the last surviving traditional gargoyle of the city sits on the Smyth Chapel at West Terrace Cemetery?

The Smyth Memorial Chapel is a rare example of a mortuary chapel within a major Australian cemetery. Father John Smyth, Archdeacon Patrick Russell and Bishop Laurence Bonaventure Sheil all played significant roles in the Church’s expansion in South Australia and are buried beneath the chapel.

The construction of a Buddhist Garden at Enfield Memorial Park is the culmination of two years’ discussion with the Buddhist community in Adelaide. Significantly, it is the first public Buddhist cemetery in South Australia.

The garden was designed in line with the cultural beliefs of the Buddhist faith under the guidance of The Venerable Thich Vien Tri of the Phap Hoa Temple in Pennington.  The site has been carefully laid out to face the ocean in the West and includes a four metre high statue of Buddha; a circular road around the statue; Land God shelters located either side of the area; Bohdi trees and an offering table. It provides for an initial 115 burial interment sites and 280 cremation memorial sites, with the potential for additional interments in future.

The development has now been completed and the Authority is delighted that His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO, Governor of South Australia has accepted an invitation to officially open the Buddhist Garden. Representatives from all South Australian Buddhist groups will also be invited.

The ceremony will take place at the Buddhist Garden at Enfield Memorial Park, Browning Street, Clearview on Sunday 3 April 2016 at 10.00am. The duration of the ceremony will be approximately 45 minutes, with light refreshments served after the event.

Please confirm your acceptance of this invitation by contacting Mr Arun Ramchand, Community Engagement Consultant at Adelaide Cemeteries Authority. Mr Ramchand can be contacted on 8139 7412 or at arun.ramchand@aca.sa.gov.au
