Service personnel and spouses

Under the Burial and Cremation Act 1964 the Council allocates parts of some cemeteries for eligible returned servicepersons. The cost of a plot in the Services Section of the cemetery is not passed onto the deceased person’s estate. However, the burial fee is charged as outlined above.

Veterans' Affairs New Zealand supports repairs, maintenance and upkeep of services cemeteries. The aim is that services cemeteries are places where veterans are remembered with honour, dignity, and respect, and visitors to services cemeteries will find their loved ones in a well-cared for and serene setting.

Paeroa and Waihi Cemeteries have a Services Section, and there is a Services Section available on the Hauraki Plains ashes wall. The Miranda cemetery does not contain a Services Section.
