Service summary

You will require this permit if you intend to conduct a funeral at a cemetery. A single funeral permit authorises you to conduct one funeral at a particular cemetery.

Single funeral permits may be issued for one of two purposes:

  • To authorise the holder of a funeral director's licence to conduct a funeral at another cemetery not specified in his or her licence.

By obtaining a single funeral permit, you become the acting funeral director and it is your responsibility to arrange for all permits, applications and authorities, as well as all other matters, associated with the funeral.
