Burial is traditional and still very popular with many families. Purewa follows the Western tradition, with each person buried in a casket. Within that, there’s a lot that can be tailored to suit your family.
You can choose to have your service at Purewa, your burial at Purewa, or both. If you decide you or your loved one would like to be buried here, the first step is to choose and buy a plot. If you’d like to hold a service at Purewa, you’ll work with a funeral director to plan the service and let us know to prepare the plot. We also have burial plots in our children and babies’ area, and a family room where you can say goodbye to stillborn or unborn children. In this instance, we offer a cremation service free of charge.
We charge an interment fee, which includes digging and topping up the grave. Purchasing a memorial or headstone can be arranged at an additional cost.
