When you "reserve" or "buy" your plot in a cemetery you are actually obtaining an "Interment Right".
The Interment Right entitles you access to a particular burial place in a cemetery now or in the future.
An Interment Right can be obtained for a Shoalhaven Cemetery or Memorial Garden or Wall by making an application to the Shoalhaven Bereavement Services office and paying the fee set by the Shoalhaven City Council. An Interment Right is issued as a certificate, which grants that the place described will be available exclusively to you or your estate.
An Interment Right is required before someone can be buried or cremated remains interred.
