NB: Not all local governments or councils use the same navigation method or have the means to provide an online searching facility but their websites are always worth a look if their area of jurisdiction is where your cemeteries of interest are located.
Hobart cemeteries and crematoria
The Southern Regional Cemetery Act 1981 was repealed under the Government Business Enterprises (Sale) Amendment Act 2007 and in July 2008, Millingtons Funeral Directors took over the Trust's role. However, the State's interests under the Burial and Cremation Act 2002 continue to be administered by the Department of Premier & Cabinet.
Millingtons currently manage the following six cemeteries in the Hobart area:
- Cornelian Bay
- East Risdon
- Mornington Memorial Gardens (Mornington Funeral Centre (Eastern Shore) Crematorium & Memorial Gardens)
- Ponville Catholic
Millingtons provide a Records Search facility on their website for all except the Ponville Catholic cemetery.
