From the Sydney Mornning Herald: Australian funeral directors have demanded an exemption from the government's proposed ban on $10,000 cash payments, claiming the policy could hit grieving people "at the lowest point in their lives". The Australian Funeral Directors Association sent answers to questions from the Senate economics committee reviewing the laws this week, claiming some funeral directors receive up to 20 per cent of their payments for funerals in cash, while about 6 per cent of funerals costing over $10,000 are paid this way.
Waterfall General Cemetery – also known as Garrawarra (or Garrawanna) Cemetery – is located north west of Helensburgh, in the northern-most part of the Wollongong local government area. This cemetery was used from 1909 to 1949 as a burial site for over 2000 tuberculosis patients from the nearby Waterfall Sanatorium, which operates today as the Garrawarra Centre for Aged Care.
ED: different NSW government and historical sources refer to the site as GARRAWARRA or GARRAWANNA. We are unclear as to which is correct.
