Mansfield Shire Council staff are available to guide you through the process of ordering bronze plaques for burials and ashes interments in the lawn section of the cemeteries.
Bronze Plaque Orders
A plaque order form is available for download. Our staff are happy to assist with the completion of this form, your layout and wording. It is preferable to make an appointment to ensure an Officer is available during business hours. Orders can be facilitated by phone, in person, or via email, whichever is most convenient.
An extensive motif library is located here. The first motif/emblem is provided at no additional charge. Additional motifs will incur a small fee.
Once the order form is received, a proof will be produced and forwarded to you for approval or further editing. Once you are satisfied with the layout and wording, your signature will be required on the proof. Plaques take up to 6 weeks to arrive. Our staff will arrange to position and mount the plaque at the cemetery.
Bronze Plaque Cleaning and Refurbishment
The effect of heat, ultra violet sunlight and general weathering means that the finish on bronze plaques will eventually break down.
A wash with mild soapy water is advisable and the use of wax will help protect the plaque from acids and dirt in the atmosphere. Stores retailing wax products should advise you on which product to choose for bronze plaque patina.
Solvents, harsh chemicals, abrasive materials such as scourers should not be used.
Complete refurbishment of plaques is available. Plaques are removed and returned to the manufacturer for total refurbishment. The reconditioned plaques look exactly like a new plaque. This can be arranged by our staff by downloading and returning the form below.
Other Types of Memorialisation
If you require any other style of memorialisation in the old or memorial sections of the cemetery, you will probably require the services of a Monumental Mason.
