I acknowledge and accept the terms of contract on this form
I DO NOT give Logan City Council permission to release my name to a third party monument/headstone/plaque/ creator for the purposes of the Monument/headstone/plaque creator confirming my burial right.
CONDITIONS OF APPLICATION
The Applicant (Burial Right Holder) must comply with all rules or regulations which may apply to the operation of the cemetery. Council may vary its rules and regulations at any time and in any manner it deems appropriate.
The purchase of a new grave acquires a Burial Right to a particular grave. The Burial Right is a right to be buried in that grave and the right to authorise the burial of others in the grave (up to the number permitted in that grave as determined by Council from time to time).
The Right may not be sold; is not transferable or transmissible by death. A Burial Right for a gravesite may be surrendered to Council. Upon surrender Council will pay the Burial Right Holder of a gravesite or their estate an amount no greater than 80% of the original purchase price of the grave.
On the death of the Burial Right Holder the authority to authorise burials in a grave reverts to Council. Council will permit, in its absolute discretions, a spouse, child, partner, relative, direct descendant, legal representative or friend of the Burial Right holder to be buried in the grave provided however that it has no reason to believe that the Burial Right Holder would have objected.
NB: Under no circumstances is a person permitted to enter into a gravesite to carry out works without the written approval from Council, to ensure the Workplace Health and Safety Act provisions are complied with.
Plaques and Plaque Bases
All plaques and bases for lawn cemeteries must be installed by Council. Flat granite / marble bases for lawn graves may be supplied by monumental masons (provided bases are to Council's specifications).
Council accepts no responsibility for the maintenance of any plaque that may be constructed on the grave. The plaques will always remain the responsibility of the Burial Right Holder or his or her family and descendants. Council reserves the right to remove any plaque (after due notice to family or descendants) the condition of which renders it dangerous to cemetery staff or visitors.
Council acts in good faith when it relies on advice provided by the Applicant/s and does not accept any responsibility for allowing a burial that might be the subject of a later dispute between family members
