An independent inquiry has been conducted into the Rookwood General Cemeteries Reserve Trust (RGCRT), after concerns from some community groups about issues at Rookwood General Cemetery concerning pricing and governance. The RGCRT was formed in 2013, through the merger of five Crown trusts – Rookwood General, Anglican, Independent, Jewish and Muslim Cemetery Trusts.
The RGCRT is a completely separate entity to the Catholic Metropolitan Cemetery Trust (CMCT) which also operates from the grounds of Rookwood Cemetery, managing the Catholic section. The RGCRT and CMCT operate under different boards, management and staff and have no association in terms of their operations and business practices.
Any queries relating to this investigation should be directed to RGCRT on (02) 8575 8100.
