Licence to Place a Monument in a Cemetery - Shire of Brookton - Western Australia

Description

You will need a licence if you intend to carry out monumental works within a cemetery. A monument can be a headstone, plaque, memorial, kerbing or plinth that marks a grave or the placement of ashes.

You will need to apply to the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board if you intend to carry out monumental works at the following cemeteries:

  • Fremantle Cemetery
  • Karrakatta Cemetery
  • Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park
  • Guildford Cemetery
  • Midland Cemetery
  • Rockingham Regional Memorial Park.

Otherwise, you will need to apply to the Council responsible for the cemetery in which you intend to carry out monumental works.

There are two different licences that allow a holder to carry out monumental work:

  • A monumental mason's licence relates to a specific cemetery and allows the holder to carry out work at any time, subject to the provisions of any applicable local laws and the conditions of the cemetery board.
  • A monumental work licence allows the holder to only work once within a cemetery to complete a specified monument.

Each time work is carried out in a cemetery to erect a monument, a fee must be paid according to the type of monument that is to be constructed.
