1. Royal Adelaide Hospital Mortuary
The mortuary at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital has four state of the art
autopsy suites and increased body storage capacity. Staff will benefit from
new equipment which will reduce their manual handling tasks and there is
a dedicated viewing space for families of the deceased.
2. Walkerville Cemetery
The Wesleyan Cemetery in Walkerville is a historic site established in 1849.
The cemetery was closed to full burials in 1973 but continues to function as a
place for inurnment of ashes. The site is owned by Town of Walkerville.
Due to the proximity to the St Andrew’s School, and after a risk
assessment was carried out, a safety audit has been conducted with a number
of the at risk headstones now made safe. This is an opportunity to learn about
the audit process, assessments on each headstone, costings and final outcome.
Following the Local Tour, members are warmly invited to attend the CCASA Sponsor and Member event at the Ibis Adelaide Hotel. Drinks and nibbles will be provided. To assist us with catering, we will require confirmation if you would like to attend this social function. Please complete the Program and Registration Form.
