Cheltenham Cemetery

Cheltenham Cemetery’s history can be traced back to 1876. Generations of families have considered this cemetery part of their story and a place close to the heart of the Port Adelaide community. Pioneers and prominent community members from the past rest here.

There’s something timeless about the rose gardens and beautiful old monuments in this cemetery. Yet carefully considered ongoing development means that Cheltenham Cemetery will be able to serve the needs of local families for many generations to come.

There’s a range of contemporary, traditional, and unique burial and cremation options on offer. Cheltenham includes prestigious sites such as Tranquillity Corner, with full monument, concrete vault and lawn beam burial sites available. There’s a number of beautiful cremation memorial areas too.

Further adding to the appeal of this cosmopolitan cemetery, Cheltenham’s newly developed Mausoleum is now open with a range of single and companion sites available.

Generous Grace Periods

Adelaide Cemeteries offer a 25 year grace period for tenures of more than 50 years, meaning the tenure on a site won’t start until an interment takes place, or 25 years after purchase – whichever occurs first.

Interest Free Payment Plans

We know that purchasing a site can be a significant investment, that’s why we offer interest free payment plans for pre-need sites. After securing the site with a 20% deposit, the remainder can be paid off over three years with no administration fees.

Officially opened in September 2020, the new Mausoleum precinct at Cheltenham Cemetery represents an exclusive opportunity for families. The Mausoleum complements the cemetery perfectly, its architecture lending a modern, European tone. From the beautiful landscaping to the fine fixtures chosen, great care has been taken to establish an air of understated prestige.

The new Mausoleum delivers more choice for families, but a strictly limited number of sites are available.

With more than 50 percent of crypts sold, families are encouraged to contact Adelaide Cemeteries should they have queries regarding the Mausoleum at Cheltenham Cemetery.
