Application to the Secretary seeking variation or forced surrender of a right of interment

In March 2021, Parliament passed the Cemeteries and Crematoria Amendment Act 2021 that provides the Secretary to the department with a discretionary power to direct the variation or forced surrender of a right of interment in certain circumstances.

An application seeking variation or forced surrender of a right of interment can be made by or on behalf of an affected person as defined in s. 84A(1) of the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act 2003.

Applicants should allow at least six months for consideration of an application.
