What’s happening with NSW cemeteries?
It seems that the NSW Government has reversed its decision to close down and take over the Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria Trusts. The concern expressed over the last few weeks by individuals and groups seems to have made a mark.
While we welcome the change, further signatories to the online petition page at www.saveourgraves.com.au will still be important and certainly add to the message and further convince the Government that the decision to change the structure was not welcome by a significant part of the community. It is also clear that there are problems in the management of cemeteries in NSW which need to be addressed. In attending to this, Trusts that are successful should be allowed to continue .
