Funeral Director’s License

Anyone who wishes to conduct funeral services in Western Australia must have a funeral director’s license, which is issued by a Board responsible for the management of a cemetery. This license authorises the funeral director to conduct funerals at a particular cemetery or cemeteries. The director is responsible for arranging all permits, applications and authorities.
