Memorial Box loans

Following the precautionary advice from the Department of Health around the spread of COVID-19, the Memorial has decided to suspend all Memorial Box loans until further notice. An update will be provided when the Memorial Box suspension has been lifted.

Memorial Boxes are held by agents in each state and territory. Find the closest one to you, and contact them for details on booking your Memorial Box. While it's free to borrow and use a Memorial Box, freight and handling charges may apply. Please also read the risk assessment before booking.
