Procedures

Our staff at the Shire of Manjimup will assist with the burial process to the best of our ability to ensure the process runs smoothly during this difficult time. The funeral home will also assist you with the correct procedures.

Burial bookings

The funeral home director will make the burial booking on your behalf. We require a minimum of 72 hours notice to arrange for the grave to be prepared.

Cemetery records

The Shire must be advised of any burial or interment within our cemeteries, so that we can map the location and record this important information for future generations. This includes the interment of ashes. If you wish to access the cemetery records, please contact us.

Fees

Please note that fees may be payable for works within our cemeteries. These fees assist in maintaining our cemeteries.  For any queries or quotes please contact the Shire so that we can ascertain your needs.

Interment into existing graves 

The Shire of Manjimup currently has a policy that it will not re-open an existing grave. It will be the responsibility of the funeral home to ensure that interments into existing graves are prepared.

Memorial works

If you are thinking of placing a memorial, renovating a memorial or adding to a memorial, please contact the Shire. Plans detailing the proposed memorial will need to be submitted and approval obtained prior to the works commencing.
