Monumental design and dimension requirements
Each cemetery has specific monumental design and dimension requirements.
The monumental mason will be aware of the specific cemetery requirements.
Cemetery staff will also provide guidance about the types of monuments allowed, when you purchase a plot.
Who can install monuments and headstones?
Monuments can only be installed within Auckland Cemeteries by approved monumental installers.
View a list of approved monument installers.
To hold an unveiling of your monument, contact the cemetery office to arrange a time.
Staff will need a date, time, plot location, contact details and approximately how many people will attend.
There is no charge for booking an unveiling ceremony.
Once the monument has been installed, the burial rights holder or their assignee will be responsible for keeping the plot and monument in good repair.
Confine all flowers and adornments to approved receptacles, and keep them on the concrete beam. They cannot encroach onto neighbouring plots.
We will remove any adornments that prevent cemetery maintenance or do not comply with cemetery guidelines.
Let us know if your details change
Cemetery records need to be kept current, so it is important that the burial rights holder for the plot or their assignee update the cemetery office if their details change.
