Memorial sites are available in Manly Cemetery’s Columbarium Wall. Burials are permitted in reserved plots provided ownership of the site can be established. Information about memorial options and applying for burial in a reserved plot are outlined on this page.


Manly Cemetery offers memorialisation in existing graves for rights holders and their beneficiaries.

Garden of Remembrance

A Garden of Remembrance is the site of the Cemetery’s Columbarium. The Columbarium is a beautifully designed memorial for your final tribute. Niches are available for the placement of cremated ashes along with a solid bronze memorial plaque.

The Columbarium

The Columbarium comprises four walls and two columns which house the ashes of loved ones. All niches are now sold in these existing walls and columns but we are proposing to build a further wall in the near future, pending funding and community consultation.  If you wish to register your interest in the new walls, please contact Cemetery administration at


New burial plots at Manly Cemetery are no longer available as the land originally allocated for burial is full. If your family has a reserved plot and you’d like to arrange a burial, contact Northern Beaches Council via email or Cemetery Admin on 1300 434 434.
