Two memorial walls have been erected at the Kopuatama Cemetery. Named the 'Wall of Remembrance', the walls provide families and individuals with a place to visit and remember loved ones who have passed away but may not be buried in the cemetery. This may include people who have been buried elsewhere or have had their ashes scattered.
Sven Hanne, Director Assets says, "It is always hard to deal with the loss of loved ones and Council aims to support whanau, family and friends through maintaining its cemeteries and providing a respectful environment with a number of options whether it be burial, ash internments, or a remembrance plaque."
The 'Wall of Remembrance' was installed following requests from grieving families who asked for a place to go to remember family members and friends who had not had an internment.
Plaque spaces are available through Council's Service Centre at a cost of $150. All plaques are to be made of granite and measure 290mm x 240mm. These are available from monumental masons.
