Corporate Governance

To ensure the effective ongoing operations of Rookwood General Cemetery, our organisation is governed by a ministerial appointed delegate.  

In accordance with the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act 2013, a statutory review of the cemetery industry is required every five years to determine whether the policy objectives remain valid and whether the terms of the Act are able to continue meeting those objectives. 

The Deputy Secretary of Crown Lands, Ms Melanie Hawyes, is the delegate appointed to govern Rookwood General Cemetery for the duration of the statutory review, which is currently underway.
