On Tuesday 25 May 2021, Minister Pavey announced the amalgamation of Sydney’s five Crown land cemeteries, including Northern Cemeteries, under an administrator, effective 28 May 2021. This is a first step towards implementing reforms to the cemeteries and crematoria sector in NSW, following a review last year by the state government.
Minister Pavey also issued the following statement in a media release on Tuesday 25 May: “In the immediate term, there will be no change to the operation of Crown cemeteries, with existing staff continuing in their roles.”
At Northern Cemeteries, our day to day services remain unchanged. We will continue to maintain the grounds and care for the graves and ash memorial sites across all our cemeteries.
Together, we continue to care for the community in all its diversity.
