In most remembrance parks, when you purchase a monument from a monumental mason, that person needs to submit an “Application” or “Permit” to the remembrance park authority, giving details and a plan of the proposed monument. The fee charged ensures some security for you by enacting the cemetery staff to:

  • Check that the monument will be placed on the correct site
  • Check that the “Application” has been signed by the person who has the authority to place a monument on the site
  • Assure that the details, design and the plan of the monument conforms to the regulations of the cemetery authority concerned, and construction complies with Australian Standards
  • Record the date of placement of the monument in the records relating to the site, and the name of the mason that did the work
  • Check from time to time on your behalf during the construction of the monument for compliance with the Application and therefore your wishes
