Memorial plaques and headstones must meet each cemetery's design specifications. This is to preserve a consistent visual standard throughout the cemeteries.
The Council's cemeteries offer bronze plaques. These are produced by a specialist and can be ordered at the Karori Cemetery office.
Memorial plaques take about 5 weeks to complete.
Removal and installation
Cemetery staff can be hired to remove or install plaques. If you prefer to have a commercial mason remove or install a memorial, you need a cemetery work permit. Stone masons will usually do this on your behalf. Permits require 24 hours notice.
