Managing a crematorium or prescribed business

If a person or organisation intends to manage a crematorium or wish to carry on a prescribed business, they are required by law to notify the Director of Local Government at least one month before they intend to start.

The Director can object to the notification if the proposed manager or operator:

  • has been convicted of certain offences; or
  • is not a ‘fit and proper’ person (in the Director’s opinion).

Important information on the requirements and process for becoming a crematorium manager and/or a prescribed business operator can be found in the following documents:
