Tenterfield Shire Council wishes to remind all visitors to the Tenterfield Cemetery of some important safety requirements.

A recent audit of the grounds has found a large number of items that are identified as prohibited. Council appreciates the sensitive nature and emotional attachment to many of these items and their relationship to your loved one; unfortunately, as these items pose a risk to council workers, maintenance workers and visitors, to ensure the continued up-keep and maintenance of the Cemetery, all prohibited items will need to be removed.

Council has no option and will soon begin the removal and disposal process of all glass articles. If any of the items are of sentimental value, please remove them immediately. All other items will be removed to a basket located at the new storage shed for collection or later disposal.

In particular, the following items pose a risk and are not permitted in the cemetery;

  • Glass vases
  • Statues
  • Pot plants
  • Lights
  • Any other articles other than flowers

Special care should be taken on the Cemetery grounds to ensure a safe and peaceful environment for all. Activities such as damaging, disturbing or interfering with any structure, flowers or plant are prohibited, and animals are not permitted to be taken on the grounds (unless required for assistance).

The complete list of prohibited items and activities are listed on the cemetery entrance sign for your information.

Thank you for helping to keep the Tenterfield Cemetery safe and orderly for all who visit.

For further clarification, please contact Tenterfield Shire Council on 6736 6000
