The second heritage listing, you will want to visit, is the Box Hill Cemetery Columbarium And Myer Memorial. The Myer memorial was designed by a British architect named Edwin Lutyens as well as local architects. The columbarian is a brick building in the style of a Byzantine which was constructed in 1929.
