Ballarat Cemeteries Searching for Families – End of Tenure


The Ballarat Cemeteries Trust advises that tenures for the memorials listed in the attachment have expired. The Trust is seeking any information that may assist us in locating the families of these people.  List of people


What is a Tenure?

Prior to the Cemeteries & Crematoria Act 2003, memorials for the placement ashes could only be arranged for a “limited tenure” of either 25 or 50 years.

Today, memorials can be arranged in perpetuity (permanent) with the vast majority of families choosing perpetuity to ensure there is a tribute for their loved one now and for future generations.

Existing memorials with a limited tenure can be converted to perpetuity.
