Events & Announcements


By way of public safety, the Hazelwood Cemetery Trust is very conscious in asking visitors to take care when walking across sodden grass surfaces.  A sensible approach is most appropriate.

APRIL 2022

  Positive comments passed onto Chairperson Leon Billington and Secretary Gayle      English recently:

  • From a vistor from Sydney, ex Morwell resident - Compliments and praise re the appearance of our cemetery especially the MANICURED lawn section.

  • Further simillar thoughts from a woman and her mother at Hazelwood Cemetery to view a family plot.​

  Comments such as these reflect the excellent ongoing maintenance at Hazelwood    Cemetery by Groundsperson/Maintenance Peter Puttock-De Jong ably assisted by    Chairperson Leon Billington as well as other Trust members from time to time.



Mrs Gayle English

This month (January 2024) , Hazelwood Cemetery Trust bids farewell to long time secretary, Mrs Gayle English. Gayle will officially retire on January 30th and relocate with husband Richard, to a new home in East Gippsland.

Following her 20+ years of dedicated service, Gayle's replacement will be Ms Rose Mildenhall. Over recent months, Rose has been learning about the intricacies of being secretary for a cemetery trust.

Gayle has many and varied anecdotes amassed over time. Advising on, and solving a myriad of personal issues has been Gayle's forte. Her other strong attibute is having in-depth knowledge of Morwell and district and its residents. All this, and coupled with an amazing ability in dealing with the state government requirements, has given the Hazelwood Cemetery Trust a strong foundation for its future. As testimony to Gayle's contribution, other gippsland cemetery trusts have often sought her wise counsel thereby strengthening the collegiate bond necessary in this, at times delicate, sensitive position of a cemetery trust.

                   THANKS GAYLE.


"Nothing was as bad as Lone Pine"  - Lieutenant General Leslie Morshead.  Lone Pine veteran.  Commander of the Australian 9th Division, 'Rats' of Tobruk.

The Battle of Lone Pine took place between August 6 and 10 in 1915 during the eight month Allied Gallipoli Campaign. Known as Plateau 400 or Lone Pine at Gallipoli, the fortified ridge position was marked by a single pine tree at the top. 

Sgt. Keith McDowell of the Australian 23rd. Battalion retrieved a cone from the actual Lone Pine tree’s blasted branches. Sgt. McDowell carried the cone for the rest of the war and on his return to Australia gave it to his aunt at Grassmere near Warrnambool in Victoria.

In June 1933 a tree propagated from the cone was planted at the Shrine of Remembrance in the Kings Domain in Melbourne. This iconic Lone Pine lasted for decades but was removed in 2012 after storm damage and failed health.
