Part of Maunu Cemetery  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Operational cemeteries

Although there are a number of operational cemeteries in the district, we are responsible only for those at Maunu, Onerahi and Kamo. They are open to the public seven days a week, 52 weeks a year.

Burials and cremations take place at the Maunu Cemetery six days a week. 

Our cemeteries are maintained to a high standard and we ask for your help to maintain these standards by observing the following requests:

  • please, no glass - including vases, jars, beer bottles and glass flowers/ornaments. Glass is easily broken causing a health and safety hazard to visitors and staff
  • please, no foodstuffs - food encourages rats, rabbits and other vermin​
  • please, no planting without written permission from the Cemetery Manager
  • please, no dogs - except guidedogs
  • please, no vehicles - between dusk and dawn.

For further information about the cemeteries which we operate, select from the links below.
