A NSW Government website


Cemeteries & Crematoria NSW (CCNSW) is the NSW government agency that regulates cemeteries and crematoria operators. 

As well as regulating operators we provide information to help people make informed decisions around burial and cremation.  

Our vision is that all people in NSW have access to sustainable and affordable burial and cremation services that are respectful of culture and faith and provided in a consistent, transparent and accountable manner.


It is important to us that all people are respected. We are progressively developing guides for many of the faiths and cultures within NSW so that operators and the recently bereaved know what to expect and operators are able to meet community expectations.
