An Interment Right for either a single depth plot, within the denominational sections or a dual depth plot, within the Lawn sections may be purchased in all cemeteries for the purpose of the burial of ashes, allowing the interment of up to eight sets of ashes only. The use of this plot must be for immediate interment of the first set of ashes, and may not be reserved in advance of need.
Ashes may also be buried into an existing plot of a previously deceased loved one. Conditions apply.
Ashes can be provided at the same time, or later during the process.
Application forms are available on the Application Forms and Related Information page.
You will need to submit the form with a Death Certificate and proof of relationship documents and pay the appropriate fee.
Council undertakes all burial of ashes and no longer permits families to bury ashes themselves. This enables accurate record keeping for reference into the future, and enables compliance with the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act (NSW) 2013.
