Burial Plots (Are sold for a fixed period of time - Tenure period)

The cemetery's many original monuments are a tribute to our sense of respect for our ancestors, the site's heritage and the art of monumental masons.

When you buy a burial plot you are only buying the right to be buried (or interred) on the land. You are not buying outright title to the land itself. Keeping this in mind, it’s important to understand that the right or licence purchased will only be for a fixed period of time, such as 25, 50, 75 or 50 years. After this time expires, a family member will be given the opportunity to renew the licence for a further term.

Prepaying Burial plots can provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones and you fix the major costs at today's prices. It also generally ensures that you get what you want. This is especially true of a cemetery plot. The location you desire today might not be available 10 or 20 years from now if you wait until death to buy it. 

Pre-arranging and pre-paying for a burial or interment location has been a tradition at Waverley and South Head General Cemeteries since 1877. 

Pre-purchase burial and memorial garden plots for ashes at Waverley and South Head General Cemeteries can be arranged wherever you live by contacting the cemetery office directly.  You may choose the location personally, or via your Funeral Director on your behalf. See Current Cemetery By-Laws Tenure + Obligations document.
