sandgate 800The Newcastle Herald reported Sandgate Cemetery would receive a much-needed  injection of funds if a proposed new management structure is approved.

The 16-hectare cemetery has been managed by a state government-appointed trust since 1987.

David Harley, the state government’s adviser on cemetery reform, has recommended the cemetery be included in a new ‘‘northern region’’ cemetery trust structure.

Other cemeteries that would be managed by the northern trust include Macquarie Cemetery, Frenchs Forest Cemetery, Gore Hill Cemetery and Field of Mars, all of which are based in Sydney.
