We realise that losing a loved one is a hard enough time. Knowing what to do next can be confusing, especially when the process of laying someone to rest is not often discussed in our culture until point of need. We would like you to know that we have someone friendly to talk to here at the cemetery who is ready to guide you, with genuine care and respect for your situation.

There is no legal requirement to use a funeral director for a burial or cremation, but people often opt for that level of support if they feel uncomfortable or unable to take on the task of managing the arrangements themselves.

If you feel that you would like to manage the funeral of a loved one yourself, we advise you to contact The Natural Death Advocacy Network.

Should you require the services of a funeral director, please find a list of local services below.

Please find guidelines for memorial placements below. We generally recommend going through a stone masons for this kind of work. 

It is generally advised to wait six months in between a burial and placing a monument to allow the ground to settle.
