Legislation

Victorian State Legislation for Cemeteries and Crematoria

In Victoria all public cemeteries and crematoria are regulated by the Cemeteries & Crematoria Act 2003. Cemeteries are governed by cemetery trusts which are divided into Class A and Class B cemetery trusts. Class A cemetery trusts have greater financial responsibilities with corresponding reporting and accountability requirements and govern the larger public cemeteries.

The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust is a Class A Cemetery Trust.
