Cemetery fees

Our fees for cemetery burial services can be found here:

Prepayment of future cemetery services

Prepayment of future cemetery services in advance allows you to select and pre-pay for the Interment Right that will be provided when the need arises in the future (previously known as a preneed arrangement).

Making these decisions in advance allows you to take the pressure off your family at what is usually an extremely emotional time and helps ensure your personal wishes are carried out.

These services can be paid for up-front in full or on a payment plan.

Cemetery services that can be prepaid are limited to interment right only.

  • Interment: this means, at a future time placing a deceased person/s or cremated ashes in an interment site or the placement of the deceased person in an above ground mausoleum or vault.
  • Allocation of an interment right: this means that a site is allocated for the burial of a deceased person/s or cremated ashes, or placement of the deceased person in an above ground mausoleum or vault (previously known as burial)
  • Memorial plaque: this is a plate at the interment site with an inscription memorialising the deceased person/s.

If you are organising a funeral for a loved one but are unsure if they had a preneed arrangement or future cemetery service with us, either contact your funeral director or contact us for more information.
