Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear"

As trust members we undertake regular governance requirements :

Legislation governing Victorian cemeteries and Crematoria

The management and operation of cemeteries and crematoria in Victoria is governed by the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act 2003 and Cemeteries and Crematoria Regulations 2015.

Cemetery Sector Governance Support provides support to cemetery trust members and other stakeholders to help them meet statutory obligations.

Cemetery trust governance

Governance is about how a public entity such as a cemetery trust is controlled and managed. It includes the authority, stewardship, leadership, direction and control exercised within the cemetery trust. It encompasses the relationships between the cemetery trust board and the responsible Minister, senior management (where applicable) and stakeholders, and the administrative arrangements that support these relationships.

Good governance provides the framework and foundation for a cemetery trust’s performance. It enables the trust to perform its functions and obligations efficiently and effectively, and to respond in an appropriate and strategic manner to changing demands and conditions.
