Many of the major Melbourne Cemetery records are online and fully searchable. In some cases you can drill down to see companion burials and grave locations which is useful for finding family members. Some of the links below will enable you to search multiple cemeteries in one go.  If the records are not online you can often call direct and ask the staff to search their offline digital records.

Note: Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust - the website for the Melbourne General Cemetery and others notes "We are currently working towards making the records of Cheltenham Memorial Park and Brighton General, Cheltenham Pioneer, Dandenong Community and Melbourne General cemeteries online" however this note has been there for many years and it appears it is not the case. You may need to call or email them directly.
