The possibility of a crematorium is being discussed, after expansions to Griffith Cemetery were locked in.
At November's final Griffith City Council meeting, it was decided a gravel carpark at the cemetery would be converted into a sixth lawn, creating room for 423 new burial plots.
With an average of 65 burials taking place each year, the new lawn provides an extra seven years of use of the cemetery, before an extension would need to be looked at again.
According to Deputy Mayor Simon Croce, construction on the new lawn will begin "sooner rather than later".
It was also decided $15,000 would be allocated towards a feasibility study, looking into building a crematorium at the existing cemetery.
There has been high demand for a crematorium in Griffith, and while one is currently set to be built alongside the planned second cemetery, building one at the existing cemetery may help deliver the service earlier for those that need it, Cr Simon Croce said.
"If they do decide this is where they want it ... we can do something serious about getting it done," he said.
"And that would be better than waiting seven or eight years for one at the new cemetery."
Yenda cemetery is also being investigated as a possible site for a crematorium.
Cr Croce said it was unlikely there would be two crematoriums built.
As part of the feasibility study, council would be looking into the potential environmental impact of the crematorium as well, Cr Croce said.
