Important Information

Under the Cemeteries & Crematoria Act (2003) Vic. only the holder of the Right of Interment (owner) of a site has the authority over a site, this includes authorising interments (burials & cremated remains) and any memorialisation that is to go on the grave site. This means that any application form will need to be signed by the holder of the Right of Interment.

Ordering

Monuments & Headstones

If you wish to establish a monument or headstone, the first step it to contact different stone masons and discuss with them the design of the memorial that you wish to establish, they will be able to provide you with a quote and guidance on requirements and can help you with which materials to use.

The monumental stone mason will need to be a registered stone mason, as they are the only ones that can establish a monument, it's not permitted for you to do it yourself.

Once you have chosen a stone mason, they will summit a 'Application to Establish or Alter a Memorial or Place of Interment', (current form) on your behalf. The application will need to be signed by the holder of the right of interment. Once a permit is granted by Yan Yean Cemetery Trust, the stone mason is able to commence working on your memorial.
