Our Committees

Our committees have been established to lead and assist management.

Rookwood General Cemeteries Reserve Trust has a number of committees that support the organisation and enable us to meet legislative requirements within the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act. 

These committees consist of external members who are considered experts in their fields, along with relevant members of the organisation.

Audit & Risk Committee

The objective of the Audit and Risk Committee is to provide independent assistance to the Trust Administrator / Board by monitoring, reviewing and providing advice about the Trust’s governance processes, risk management and control frameworks, and its external accountability obligations.

Heritage Advisory Committee 

The objective for the Heritage Advisory Committee is to maintain the historical, scientific, cultural, social, archaeological, architectural, natural and aesthetic significance of Rookwood.  This includes providing oversight on heritage items managed by the Trust and monitoring our safety and conservation program.

Community Advisory Committee 

The primary objective of the Community Advisory Committee is to ensure the Trust manages Rookwood in accordance with community expectations.  This includes providing insights into changing demographics and matters of interest, and assisting with strategies that promote effective stakeholder engagements.
