Cemeteries and Crematoria Bylaw 2014

The Cemeteries and Crematoria Bylaw regulates cemeteries and crematoria we own or operate.

You should know

We are reviewing this bylaw to make sure it meets residents' needs, now and in the future.

We will ask your views as part of this process by providing a link from this page, and will let you know of the outcome when the review is finished.

​What the Cemeteries and Crematoria Bylaw does

The bylaw establishes the framework to make the Cemeteries and Crematoria Code of Practice 2014.

The code of practice seeks to protect, promote and maintain public health and safety, and minimise the potential for offensive behaviour in cemeteries and crematoria.

The code of practice covers:

  • burial (interment)
  • removing a body or remains (disinterment)
  • built structures like vaults and mausoleums
  • grounds maintenance
  • records.
