Managing our cemeteries

We want our burial grounds to be restful, respectful, safe and welcoming and to provide exemplary cemetery and cremation services for the people of Porirua City.

We manage three public cemeteries in Porirua and our management plan sets out the policies that help us achieve our vision.

Our Cemetery Management Plan sets out the policies that will help us achieve this vision.    

The Cemetery Management Plan was adopted by Council on 17 October 2012.
