"Adelaide Now" reports Centennial Park management may consider making the cemetery a weddings venue if a bid for a special liquor licence is successful.
The Pasadena cemetery has applied to the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner to sell alcohol to mourners, between 8am and midnight every day, at its Jubilee complex in the middle of the park.
If approved, it would be the first cemetery in the state to serve alcohol at funerals.
Approval could also pave the way for the venue to become a hub for wedding celebrations. Centennial Park Cemetery Authority chief executive Bryan Elliott said the purpose of the application to make alcohol available to mourners, but he would not rule out the potential to host wedding functions.
“The initial proposal is for wakes,” Mr Elliott said.
“But we are always looking to explore other opportunities.”
The cemetery is the largest in SA and is independently managed on behalf of its joint owners, Mitcham and Unley councils.
