Licence to Carry out Monumental Works (Cemetery) - Western Australia

Description

You will require a licence if you intend to carry out monumental works within a cemetery. A monument can be a memorial, headstone, kerbing or plinth that marks a grave. A monument cannot be placed in a cemetery without the permission of the Board responsible for the cemetery.

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.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
