Riverstone Cemetery

Riverstone Cemetery is a traditional rural cemetery of monumental graves, situated at the corner of Cemetery Road and Garfield Road West, Riverstone.

Set among stands of gum trees, sections are set aside to accommodate Catholic, Church of England, Methodist, Muslim, Non-Sectarian and Presbyterian interments.

Perpetual Interment Right Licences are available for reservation and immediate need. Ashes can be interred (buried) in family graves on application, with placement being conducted by a stone/monumental mason, grave digger or funeral director.

We allocate the site location based on the applicants preferred denomination/section. Burials are excavated to double depth and in consecutive order so use of land is sustainable.

We are members of the Cemeteries and Crematoria Association of NSW.

How do I organise a burial?

You or your chosen funeral director/home can contact us on your behalf. If a Interment Right has been pre-purchased, simply provide the receipt/certificate to the funeral home.

Where this is unavailable other evidence must be provided. When evidence cannot be provided, we reserves the right to refuse permission for interment.

We do not engage grave digging or funeral arrangements, please refer to your chosen funeral director/home for these arrangements.

Additional fees apply for burials conducted on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays (refer to our Goods and Services pricing Schedule for charges)

How do I organise a headstone or memorial?

A Headstone or Memorial may be added as a marker or sign or rememberance on application. Works must comply with the Australia Standard AS 4204 -1994 and must be constructed by a licecend Stone Mason once approval has been granted by Council.
