Grave Purchase Options
A grave can be sold at-need (that is, at the time of burial) or on a pre-purchase basis (that is, at today’s prices for a future burial). Please call the office to find out what sections are available for pre-purchase and what sections are at-need only.
Burial costs also vary according to the specific service and requests of each family. Costs will vary significantly according to the type of burial and the location of the cemetery. Please contact our office to obtain an accurate price.
Note: A Will, Registered Death Certificate or signed agreement from all of the identified remaining family may be needed. This is particularly important if a second person is to be buried and the Holder has already died.
What does 'Right of Burial Licence' Mean?
When a person purchases a grave, they do not actually purchase the piece of land. They purchase the "Right of Burial", which gives them the right to use that piece of land for burials and to place a monument over the grave, but the government will always own the land.
Line of Control
The following information is a generalisation only. Please contact our office for further details for different circumstances.
Before a burial can take place we will require a complete line of control from the original owner. To prove a line of control you will require:
This process continues down the line with the children’s spouse if the child is deceased (and was married and/or has children of their own). To allow the burial to take place, copies of identification (eg. drivers licence, pension card) will be required.

Note: In some instances a Statutory Declaration signed by a Justice of the Peace will be adequate but this will have to be approved by the Trust before this avenue is to be taken.
