Burial & Internment

1. BURIAL

Although some burial sites are still available, the remaining space in the cemetery is limited. Enquiries regarding the availability of plots may be made to the Parish Secretary.

Cemetery plots are available at a price of $2750.00 GST inclusive

2. COLUMBARIUM

The Columbarium is located at the rear of the Church, forming a wall between the Church grounds and the Cemetery.

All arrangements concerning the Columbarium are handled by the Parish Secretary, who may be contacted at the Parish Office.

The Funeral Director should be advised by the family to arrange the transfer of ashes to St John’s for the attention of the Parish Secretary, to enable placement in the Columbarium to proceed.

3. NICHES

Niches may be purchased at the time of bereavement or in advance, especially where family grouping is desired. The secretary will be pleased to advise of available niches.

4. PLAQUES

A bronze plaque of standard size and design is affixed to the Wall over the niche and will be inscribed in accordance with family wishes. Some suggested inscriptions are included for your guidance.
