What You Need To Know


Planning for a Memorial

One of the first considerations when planning a memorial is knowing what design styles are permitted in the area the memorial is to be placed. Many council cemeteries are divided into areas that have strict design and dimension limits, but there is a trend towards mixed design areas that are more flexible. If you require any help with establishing the type of memorial allowed please contact us.

We will check this for you at time of order to ensure that we are creating a correct memorial specification.

Memorials are often collected from our factory to be installed in family cemeteries and urupas across the North Island. We also organise packing and shipping to the Pacific Islands.


How much will it cost?

This can vary greatly depending on the style of memorial.

Upright headstone prices will start at around $1,400 for one of our lower budget designs, we have low cost options available for families who want to mark a grave site with a tribute -

Most of the memorials we do fall between the $3,000 to $6,000 range and this will provide for a good quality memorial and base made from granite. In most cases this includes installation and cemetery permit fees.

Basic plaques for cremation areas can range from $400 - $1200 depending on option added.

We can also produce custom designed headstones that can reflect an individual character such as sculptured granite designs and accessories.

The designs in our showrooms are changing all the time and our gallery on this web site has a good sampling of work we have done. Visiting the cemetery will also give a good idea of the variety of design options available. If you have seen something you like, take a photo of it and bring it in or email it to us to have a look at papatoetoe@memorials.co.nz


Payment Options

A LayBy scheme is a popular method if there is some time until an unveiling. An initial deposit is put down and regular payments calculated to ensure the required amount is paid by the time the memorial is finished.
