Burial Services


Before a memorial can be erected, written permission must be obtained from Burial Services on a memorial permit application form, this must also be completed for repairs to a memorial or when a new inscription is added. A Council approved memorial stonemason will help you with this.

To ensure that all memorials are being fixed to a recognised industry standard, only stonemasons who have been council approved can complete works on memorials in our burial grounds.

The lair holder, their beneficiaries or their representatives are responsible for any memorial placed at a lair (grave) and its upkeep.
