Rookwood Cemetery Uncovered: A Dying to Know Day Event

Take this unique opportunity to learn more about cemeteries, from history through to operations, as a part of Dying to Know Day 2020.

Friday 14 August 2020, 10.30am – 1.00pm

Rookwood General Cemetery partnered with The Groundswell Project to host an event focused on starting healthy and insightful conversations around the process of losing a loved one.

  • How does a cemetery work?
  • What should I do if a loved one passes away?
  • Celebrants – opportunities for services without a priest
  • Buddhist meditations – spiritual life after death and grieving
  • Should I plan ahead and pre-purchase a grave?
  • Lifelong connections and services at Rookwood after one’s passing.

This event is over. Recordings of the sessions are published below.
