Special Reviews

Interment costs and pricing in NSW

In progress
Start Date
May 2019
End Date
Dec 2019

IPART is investigating and reporting on the costs of and pricing for interment in NSW cemeteries.


There have been significant reforms in the NSW cemetery sector in recent years, including the amalgamation of Crown cemetery trusts and the introduction of the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act 2013. Under this Act, IPART is now required to investigate the costs and the pricing of interment rights.


We will conduct a public consultation process and our own research and analysis. 

What Next

We released an Issues Paper setting out our proposed approach to the review and seeking feedback from stakeholders on a range of inputs to the review. 

Submissions closed on 7 June 2019. 

Stakeholders will also have an opportunity to provide input to our review through our Draft Report (due by September) and/or by attending a Public Hearing.  We will consider all stakeholder feedback before we complete our Final Report in December 2019.
