Burials

Only pre-purchased reservations and re-openings of an ordinary grave are available at the Mundaring Cemetery (due to ground deficiency at the site).

Wooroloo Cemetery has burial plots available, although they cannot be reserved.

Wooroloo Cemetery is made up of several burial sections by religious denomination: Roman Catholic, Non-Conformist, Church of England.

Burials are arranged through a Funeral Director who contacts the Shire to make the appropriate arrangements. 

Burial Times

Burials at Mundaring and Wooroloo take place between the hours of 10am and 2pm. An Application for Burial form will need to be submitted prior to the burial date.

Funeral Arrangements

All bookings to hold a funeral shall be made with the Shire at least 24 hours prior to the time proposed for burial on the application, otherwise an extra charge may be applied.

The Shire can refuse the application if the specifications covered under section 20 or 21 of the Cemeteries Act are not structurally sound or are otherwise inadequate or inappropriate, or on any other grounds.

Monuments

Either a family or a Monumental Mason can construct monuments.

Fees are only applicable if work is to be undertaken by a monumental mason, who will be required to fill in the relevant licence application under the Cemeteries Act 1986.

If the family is undertaking the work then there is no fee. A written request is required as well as a monumental application with attached detailed diagram of what is proposed to be undertaken. The purpose of this is to ensure that the structure will be safe and will not impede on other grave locations.
