Cemeteries and Crematoria Bylaw 2014

The Cemeteries and Crematoria Bylaw regulates council owned or operated cemeteries and crematoria.

​What the Cemeteries and Crematoria Bylaw does

The Cemeteries and Crematoria Bylaw (PDF 603KB) aims to minimise:

  • public safety risks
  • distress
  • nuisance
  • damage to property and heritage
  • interference with ground maintenance and operational activities.

The bylaw sets out a framework that manages activities at council cemeteries and crematoria by enabling council to make rules in a separate Cemeteries and Crematoria Code of Practice (PDF 2.6MB).

​What the Code of Practice covers

The Code of Practice covers:

  • burial (interment)
  • cremation and ashes
  • removing a body or remains (disinterment)
  • built structures like monuments, adornments, vaults and mauseoleums
  • Wāhi Tapu Māori Areas
  • ground maintenance
  • record-keeping.
