The Columbarium wall is a beautifully designed memorial for your final tribute, located in the Garden of Remembrance at the historic Manly Cemetery.

The Columbarium is set out with four walls and two columns making up the semi-circle  design of the memorial.

The walls serve as either a memorial or a niche for the interment of ashes, with either single-sized or double-sized niches available.


Please note, all niches in the wall have been pre-sold but Council is hoping to release a second stage in mid 2022.

Council currently has plans for a proposed extension to the columbarium and associated memorial gardens on exhibition. Please see our Your Say page for more information. 

A drop in opportunity has been rescheduled to Saturday 17 April.

If you would like to be added to our waiting list for the new niches, please contact Customer service on 1300 434 434 or email your details to


If you wish to organise to inter ash remains in a reserved niche in the Columbarium, please complete a Placement of Ash Remains form.

Memorial bronze plaques are made to order with a range of sizes:

  • Single-sized niche in wall or column with eight line inscription
  • Double-sized niche in wall with eight line inscription
