Tree of Remembrance Finished

memorywall150519fb.jpgWhyalla Council has completed its Tree of Remembrance at the Whyalla Cemetery and is open to those who wish to remember those that have chosen to have their ashes scattered elsewhere.

The free-standing concrete wall will accommodate individual bronze butterfly-shaped plaques to commemorate people whose ashes have been spread elsewhere. 

Council Cemetery Curator Tim Butt says cemetery records do not indicate where the ashes were scattered and the wall is a way of permanently remembering those people.

He says the Tree of Remembrance will provide a more affordable alternative for families to have a tangible connection to their loved ones.
