Further pricing information

<br>

From 1 July 2023, GMCT’s product and service prices increased in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) increase applied at the Government set level of 8%.

How does GMCT set its prices?

In Victoria, the prices for cemetery plots and services are regulated by the State Government, and they increase by a certain percentage every year. Under section 43 of the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act, all trust fees of $50 or more are increased annually in accordance with CPI.

All prices are gazetted fees in accordance with the Cemeteries and Crematoria Act 2003 (Vic). Cemetery trusts cannot charge a fee that has not been set by the department and published in the Victorian Government Gazette. The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust is a not-for-profit, community-based organisation reporting to the Department of Health. This structure ensures services are available for the whole community and the prices are government approved and gazetted.
