You can hire the Whenua Tapu Crematorium chapel for a pre-committal or burial service and refreshments. There is a hire fee for the chapel.
To make a booking, either your funeral director can arrange it, or you can phone our Customer Services Centre on (04) 237 5089. Tell us what type of service you want and the start/end times, making sure you allow enough time for setting up and clearing away.
