The Shire operates cemeteries in Manjimup, Northcliffe, Pemberton and Walpole, and also maintains the Balbarrup Cemeteries. Council's Cemetery Local Law (in conjunction with State legislation) governs how Shire cemeteries are operated.

For details concerning grave locations, reservations and other general enquires please contact us.

The Shire can also assist with plaques for memorial niche walls and within remembrance gardens. Please contact Shire staff for pricing and availability.

Plants and Trees

No person shall plant or place within pots any trees, shrubs or plants in the cemetery without prior approval of an authorised officer.


The Shire requests that flowers and ornaments be located atop of graves. Items that are outside of gravesite boundaries, have become unsightly or pose a risk to others will be removed by authorised officers.


Cemeteries should be a place of serenity and reflection and the Shire asks that visitors respect this. Vandalism will not be tolerated. If you see vandalism within our cemeteries, please contact the Shire.


Council would like to thank the community groups who do a fabulous job ensuring that cemetery grounds are maintained and kept tidy.  Should you wish to volunteer time, please contact the Shire to be put in touch with the relevant community group.
