The general process for interment is for the funeral director to contact Council and complete the relevant application form. After the relevant application form is completed and returned, Council will arrange site preparation.
Please note that inground burials in religious denomination areas including Catholic, Anglican, Uniting and Lutheran Divisions require a full concrete slab to be constructed over the plot between 12 and 24 months after interment.
A bond is to be paid upon burial which will be held in trust by Council and refunded once the concrete slab has been constructed over the grave plot. Alternatively, the bond will be used by Council to construct the slab if not completed within the two year time frame.
