Cemeteries and Crematoria Fees and Charges approved for 1 July 2017.
All fees and charges are inclusive of GST (except as noted *).
|Cemeteries and Crematoria||Fee (incl GST)|
|Note: R.S.A. Personnel: No charges are made for plots or niches for R.S.A. personnel in the R.S.A. section of the Takapau, Waipukurau or Waipawa Cemeteries but interment fees as below apply.
Note: The sale of reserve plots is restricted to one and then only in conjunction with the burial of a member of the same family. (With each application a standard form is filled out so that an accurate record of the reserve plot is kept. A copy of this form is also forwarded to the local Funeral Director.) Those persons who have reserved plots on behalf of another person or for family members cannot reserve a further plot until the original reserved plots are used. Pursuant to section 10 (4) of the Burial and Cremation Act 1964 the exclusive right of burial will lapse after sixty (60) years. All plots not used after 60 years will be offered for re-sale following deliberate effort to trace the purchaser or descendants thereof.
Note: The cost of general grounds maintenance in the cemetery including mowing plots in the lawn cemetery areas is carried out by Council and paid for in the Burial Plot Fee. However maintenance of headstones, fences, concrete-work, etc on any plot is the responsibility of the deceased’s descendants and relatives.
Note: There are no additional charges for extra depth burial plots.
Note: With burials, including ashes and still born, where the grave has a concrete top additional charges are payable for concrete cutting and reinstatement.
