Shepparton News reports that from next month two cemeteries in Greater Shepparton will be placed under the jurisdiction of a Bendigo-based trust.

 The Bendigo Cemeteries Trust, trading as Remembrance Parks Central Victoria, will assume the management and maintenance of the Pine Lodge and Kialla West cemeteries.

Managed by Greater Shepparton City Council, the changes are set to come into effect from July 1.
