Some months ago, ACCA embarked on an industry-wide survey of our cremation capacity as a nation. Thank you to all those crematoria that responded to this important piece of work for our industry. A list of all contributing crematoria is at the footer of this document. If your crematorium is not listed here, please contact me to discuss the inclusion of your relevant data.
In my nearly 10 years working in the cemeteries and crematoria industry in Australia I have never seen any statistics around cremation in a national sense from our industry collective. I have seen state-based numbers, and numbers provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, but never anything from within our own sector.
The ACCA Board agreed that this was information that our industry should have, and sought to create a survey that would gather this important data and collate it to produce meaningful information around a) our current national cremation activity and b) around our capacity to increase cremation services nationally if required.
