Lawn Cemetery Tributes

Council has adopted a Cemetery Strategy that outlines the placement of tributes at Lawn Cemeteries.

Council has installed signage at both lawn cemeteries advising the community of the terms and conditions associated with interments in the lawn cemeteries. These conditions are also outlined in Council’s Conditions of Burial Rights signed by grantees when applying for a burial right or for the placing of ashes within Council’s cemeteries.
