The chapel

The non-denominational chapel is surrounded by beautiful gardens, creating a sense of peace and serenity at the heart of the cemetery.

The chapel is well placed alongside the administration office and within short walking distance of the Bob White Function lounge.

The chapel provides seating for 250 people, with space available for an additional 200 people if required.

Audio visual facilities are available, including web-streaming of services for those who are unable to attend the service.

Magnolia Room

The Magnolia Room is a private area that allows families to have the last intimate farewell with their loved one before cremation. This room can accommodate up to 20 people with limited seating.

The Magnolia Room can also be used as an alternative ‘chapel’ for those wishing to say a final farewell in a more intimate setting or to conduct a viewing of the deceased prior to using the main chapel.

The Magnolia Room features viewing windows allowing families to see the final committal, should they so wish.

Bob White Function Lounge

The function lounge provides a place for families to meet over refreshments after the funeral service.

There is an on-site caterer who is contracted to Manukau Memorial Gardens.

Families cannot supply their own caterer. The lounge is certified for 150 people with overflow available onto a shaded patio area.

Burial, cremation and memorial options

Special areas of the Memorial Park have been established for different burial, cremation and memorial options.

Contact the Memorial Park or your funeral director for more information.
