CEMETERY PERMITS MAY BE REQUIRED
The public cemeteries require a permit before a headstone can be placed.
Each area within the cemeteries will have a design and size restriction that must be adhered to.
The permit cost will vary depending on the cemetery. We will inform you of these costs.
Any cemetery that falls under the Auckland City Council will now require the
Burial Rightsholder to provide their details and Certificate of Ownership number
when applying for the permit.
Private cemeteries will have different rules, we recommend contacting
the person in charge of the private cemetery for more information.
The price of each headstone is dependent on the size and style.
Our full packages include:
One Photo Ceramic, your loved one's name in Gold leaf,
The balance of the lettering in white,
set number of our standard artwork,
if within Auckland- installation
OR shipping to a main port within the Southern Pacific.
