Following the Funeral Service a decision as to the placing of a memorial becomes a matter of great importance to many families. Some families wish to recognise and acknowledge a person’s life in the form of a permanent tribute. At Auckland Memorial Park & Cemetery we are here to support you through this time and are happy to discuss the many different options available.
As an example a popular choice is to have an ash burial in a chosen area, with the applicable headstone/plaque (which we can supply), while some others may choose to scatter the ashes. Whatever you are considering, our team is able to provide both expert advice, and a range of options.
Auckland Memorial Park & Cemetery has available ash burial options that range from beautiful garden areas, Rose gardens, Memorial seats and individual trees, shared trees, or even Family tree estates. The many options available provide for differing interment options, with some plots being for individuals, some for two ashes, and of course the family options and our expert team are only too willing to help you trough this process.
There is no set time frame to install a memorial and our team can help guide you through the process without any pressure. Some families make instant decisions, and some may take up to a year or two until the moment feels right to them, and they are finally ready to proceed.
We understand that for many families the process is new and unfamiliar, but our Relationship Team are here to support and provide the right guidance. You can purchase ash burial plots from many different options and achieving an outcome that meets all your needs is our goal as we seek to develop a long term relationship with your family.
We can also help you in arranging ash-scattering ceremonies such as a floating ceremony, trenching ceremony or ringing ceremony.
