|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Cheltenham Memorial Park located in Cheltenham, a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, was established in 1933 following a sudden increase in the demand for grave sites at Cheltenham Pioneer Cemetery in the late 1920's.
From 1944 to 1952 the 20 hectare (50 acre) site was progressively established through land acquisitions. In 1961 the first lawn burial area was opened and wall niche memorials established.
In 1966 the construction of the first mausoleum occurred. The cemetery now has six individual mausolea , with a new mausoleum due for completion early 2013.
