Sorrento Public Cemetery
On 12 December 2017, Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT) was formally appointed to manage the Sorrento Public Cemetery (SPC).
SMCT is proud to now have nine cemeteries within its care and management.
SMCT are currently working through a transition period with the SPC management team, with a full handover of operations expected to be effective 1 March 2018.
Established circa 1886, SPC has an entrenched and valuable heritage that is balanced with a commitment to meet the future needs of the community. Notable interments include Federal Senator John Button, Member of the Legislative Assembly of Victoria, Vin Heffernan, actor Sophie Heathcote and Dame Zara Bate, the wife of former Prime Minister of Australia Harold Holt.
SMCT is committed to ensuring that SPC operations continue with the same compassion, empathy, dedication of purpose and pride as the existing sites within our care.
