Cemetery Plaque Information
The payment of Burial Fees to Council for Lawn graves and Interment of Ashes, include a basic bronze plaque to a certain value – depending on the burial/columbarium and the current Council Management Plan.
At some point in time following a funeral it would be appreciated if you could contact Council's Environment and Planning Department at the Culcairn Office, to discuss the plaque for the lawn grave/niche wall for your deceased family member.
Council will obtain a quote and proof of the plaque from our supplier. You will be advised of the additional cost over the amount allowed for in the Burial Fee (if any) and also a copy of the proof. You will be required then to check the proof carefully for spelling/dates etc and give approval for the plaque, or notify if any corrections need to be made.
The order for the plaque will then be issued to the supplier. Once the plaque is received it will be fitted at the cemetery and then Council will raise a sundry debtor account for the additional cost (if any) to the Executor of the estate or person nominated.
