In spite of its local, state, and national significance and being a treasure trove of history Waverley Cemetery receives no government funding for its operation. All revenue is derived from the provision of our services (the sale of Rights of Burial in graves and memorial gardens, burials and ash interments, grave maintenance plans, guided tours, etc). This vital income enables us to maintain the cemetery at its current level and investigate areas of service than can be improved. Waverley Cemetery is a fully functioning, fully operational cemetery. We conduct funerals on a daily basis. Our continuing operation means we stay relevant to our changing society and relevant to the people who need us. Those people in greatest need. Those people who find themselves at the time of loss and grief.
