Fawkner Cemetery opened in 1906 to cope with the city’s expanding North West.  It has an onsite crematorium, three nondenominational chapels and a 3000 crypt mausoleum.  It also offers a grief counselling service.

In March 2010, Fawkner Cemetery was merged with a number of other metropolitan cemeteries in the North East and North West of Melbourne and is now operated by the Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust.

The cemetery offers cremation services with traditional wall niches, tree memorials, rose memorials, or an urn placed in the Columbarium.  Alternatively the cremated remains may be included within an existing grave and a separate plaque erected or the original headstone changed.

Fawkner Cemetery is the final resting place of John Batman, the founder of the City of Melbourne.

The cemetery is accessible by rail, with Fawkner railway station located close by.
