I'm looking for a decent place to be buried. Maybe Mataranka in N.T., or Cue or Halls Creek in W.A.

Preferably, in a hundred year plot and not too expensive. If I were a Catholic I could get buried for eternity for a small price, but I'm not and don't want to pretend.

Does anyone have any ideas for W.A. and N.T. and S.A.?

G'day, if cost is the main factor, do what I am going to do, be cremated and have my ashes scattered at sea......... no ongoing costs.

Mick,

What about at the old Mulka store? Only cost would be for backhoe hire, it'd be pretty hard digging.



This poor girl has been here for over 110 years. She might be pleased with some company?

I probably won't have much choice, but cremation is not a bad way to finish.

Gday,
I dig most of the graves in our town. If you don't tell anyone I could do a cashie on the weekend but you'll still have to pay for the plot and a rock breaker if needed.....

Who the hell would want their meat and bones stuck in a box and buried as worm fodder.
Noooo Thank's.

Mine already paid for $5 grand up front cash. then any extra the day they turn the furnace on. Big fat fire. Box of dust. Neat and tidy. no hassles.
Then when missus ready. sprinkle me at sea. in river. Down Dunny in a bad mood.
Who cares.
Once YOU inside have gone it's only rotting meat to some degree. You ain't got any more use for it. Get rid of in most practical way possible. Nice and quietly.
Bit of pissup for mates and any family and get on with it.

My opinion anyway. EX Catholic. Since they converted Midnight Mass to bloody English Language. Haven't been but once since. It's not the same. Went every X.mas prior to.

I've decided on cremation. The wife will hang on to me until she goes, then we'll be joined again, along with those of our dogs and then we'll be let go in the middle of Oz somewhere to continue our journey.

Go to the Medical dept of the university and fill in the paperwork so that when the time comes to fall off the perch your body is donated for medical research , when the Med students have finished you get cremated and your designated next of kin receives the ashes to do with as they wish ……… cost ?? ….. Nothing …… And it helps our next load of doctors to better understand the human body ……..

I've been a medical writer and know too much about them.

I found a mostly disused cemetery north of Cue, in W.A. Dunes had covered most of the graves, yet a woman with a new tombstone was buried amongst the sand.

She was probably an old resident of the area who died in a city nursing home then wanted to be buried back in home in what was abandoned homestead country.

I found that quite moving, this possibility.
