Default Rookwood Cemetery - Google a Grave

https://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2019-...C9meLvlZ0vDS9c

This caught my eye as we have a family member buried there.

Can anyone fathom out how to access it? It sounds from the article as though it should already be operational, but it doesn't seem to be accessible from the Rookwood RC or Anglican and General websites, or directly through Google maps.

It's a great idea, although I have been lost there numerous times and it isn't always a bad thing.

The cemetery is huge, this will help people find where they are going so much more easily, which will be wonderful for those grieving, more so than those researching.

I looked also but couldn't find it.

I've tried ringing but can't get an answer and my only remaining option is to hit the Book a Funeral button which I don't want to do. I'll try again later.

Go to Rookwood General Cemeteries website. Select Deceased Search and enter the details there.

The few I've looked for do not have grave images but they do tell you exactly where the grave is.
