Administered Cemetery Act 1865
Back to Top
Trustees of the Dalby General Cemetery were appointed under the "Cemetery Act 1865" on 8 Nov 1870.

Cemetery trustees had powers to enclose the land granted in trust for cemetery purposes and were responsible for the administration, upkeep and maintenance of the cemetery. Rules, regulations, accounts, trustee appointments and notification of closing of the cemetery were required to be published in the Government Gazette.

The "Local Authorities Act 1902" empowered the Governor-in-Council to authorise local authorities to assume, from existing trusts, the management and control of cemeteries so proclaimed. Under the Act, from 1 July 1905 the Dalby Town Council took over responsibility for the cemetery, and the Trust was dissolved.
