About the Cemeteries & Crematoria Association of NSW


The Cemeteries and Crematoria Association of New South Wales (CCANSW) was established in 1965. It is an advocate for its members and the community in all matters relating to the management, governance and progress of cemeteries & crematoria in New South Wales and the A.C.T.

The CCANSW membership covers a wide cross-section of the industry, including those coming from public entities, corporations, businesses and individuals.

About us

Our regular meetings provide a forum for all members to contribute and are supplemented with social activities which provide the delegates with opportunities to develop working relationships.

Our membership subscription rates vary for each category of membership. Members fees are based on the total number of burials and/or cremations per year, which gives an opportunity for even the smallest enterprise to participate fully in the association. Fees for Affiliates and Associates are a set rate per annum.
We have in excess of 100 member organisations, which covers a large percentage of the industry in New South Wales and ACT.
