For those booking burials (usually Funeral Directors), all applications for burial must be made to Bereavement Services between the hours of 9.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday.

 

All initial bookings for a burial (including the burial of cremated remains) in the Cemetery must first be made to Bereavement Services either by telephone or in person, and confirmed in writing as soon as possible thereafter using the Council’s specified Notice of Interment form.

 

The correctly completed Notice of Interment must be delivered to the Council Offices by 10:00am at least two clear working days before the planned day of burial.  No interment will take place unless the completed Notice of Interment form has been received.

 

The coffin or casket size must be confirmed in writing.  The size must be exact and include mouldings and any opened handles.  Any alteration to these sizes must be notified to Bereavement Services in writing at least one day prior to the funeral.

 

Alterations to arrangements can only be accepted in writing prior to the burial date, this ensures that there can be no misunderstandings if only verbal alterations are given.

 

Interments will take place between the hours of 9:00am and 3:00pm straight to grave.  During the months of November, December and January the last burial time will be 2:30pm straight to grave.

 

In the instances where a burial is booked with less than 24 hours notice for religious reasons, the Notice of Interment form must be faxed to Bereavement Services by 12:00 noon on the day of the burial to confirm the booking.
