Victoria

Melbourne metro cemeteries

Many of the major Melbourne Cemetery records are online and fully searchable. In some cases you can drill down to see companion burials and grave locations which is useful for finding family members. Where noted it is best to use INTERNET EXPLORER for this as some sites require Java enablement.  Some of the links below will enable you to search multiple cemeteries in one go.  If the records are not online you can often call direct and ask the staff to search their offline digital records.
