Waverley Cemetery is an iconic, heritage site, and Waverley Council has been working hard to ensure it can be preserved. Over the past 18 months we’ve completed a comprehensive review of the condition of the Cemetery infrastructure.
Waverley Council endorsed the Waverley Cemetery Masterplan in September 2018, which sets the vision and framework for how the cemetery will meet the present and future needs of the surrounding communities. It aims to encourage and strengthen the sense of the place, and to enrich the heritage significance of the site.
We have now also built up much of the funding necessary for restoration of vital Cemetery assets such as fencing, gates, retaining walls, roads, paths, drains, shelters and buildings.
The aim is to preserve the character and heritage of this beautiful site, provide the interment services needed, and ensure the Cemetery has funds for it to be maintained into the future
