The Cemetery Act 1865, which repealed Section 75 of the Municipal Institutions Act 1864 empowered the Governor-in-Council to appoint trustees to hold land in trust for the establishment or purpose of a public cemetery.

The Dayboro Cemetery Trust originated as the Upper North Pine Cemetery Trust. The cemetery reserve at Upper North Pine was proclaimed under the Land Act 1897 on 2 Sep 1903. By the same proclamation trustees for the Upper North Pine Cemetery were appointed. By proclamation of 28 Sep 1939, the Upper North Pine Cemetery Trust became the Dayboro Cemetery Trust, and the Upper North Pine Cemetery was renamed Dayboro Cemetery.

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 and accounts were to be kept by the trustees and along with trustee appointments and notification of closing of the cemetery were required to be published in the Government Gazette.

The Local Authorities Act 1902 and subsequently the Local Government Act 1936 empowered the Governor-in-Council to authorise local authorities to assume, from existing trusts, the management and control of cemeteries so proclaimed. In addition, the act granted local authorities the power to take land and erect or construct buildings to be used for or in conjunction with cemeteries. On 11 May 1955, the Council of the Shire of Pine was appointed trustee for the reserve for the cemetery at Upper North Pine under the Land Acts 1910-1955, in place of the existing Cemetery Trust.
