We can help you choose a cemetery or grave by advising on the types and availability of graves, and any conditions that apply to them, such as their suitability for memorials.

In some cemeteries the plots are allocated as the next available plot.

All graves or garden of rest plots are sold on a 50-year lease. Sanctums are sold on a 20-year lease.

It is the deed holder's responsibility to contact Bereavement Services once the lease expires.

Additional years are not available to purchase at the moment.
