Will burials take place in the funeral location?
No. Only the funeral or
memorial service will take place at the public place location, the burial will
take place elsewhere. Once a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death has been
issued, a body can be buried. There are three choices of burial site: a public
cemetery, a private cemetery, or private land.
Will the body be visible to the public?
We’re proposing that if caskets are permitted, they will be closed and shielded from the public.
Will funerals be held on the weekends?
The policy is considering making public places available for funerals and memorial services on weekdays between the hours of 9.00am and 3.00pm.
How would I make a complaint if I felt confronted by a funeral in a public place?
You can contact the City of Kalamunda at Administration
office at 2 Railway Road, Kalamunda, via phone 9257 9999 at or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Why is this being considered for policy development?
In 2019 we received a request to hold a funeral
in Stirk Park, this prompted a Special Council Meeting in order to assess the
viability of going ahead with this request. We’d like to take the conversation
wider now and bring it to the public in order to understand how you feel about
holding funerals in public places. The City of Kalamunda is dedicated to the
well-being of its community, and death is a complicated issue.
