Returned service personnel and spouses plots

Under the Burial and Cremation Act 1964 the Council allocates part of its cemeteries to Returned Servicemen as defined by the Ministry of Defence. The cost of a plot in the Returned Services section of the cemetery is not passed onto the
deceased person’s estate. However, we do still charge the burial fee as outlined above. The Office of Veterans' Affairs, (as part of the Ministry of Defence) is responsible for maintaining and ensuring the proper administration of the Returned
Services section of the cemetery.

Paeroa and Waihi Cemeteries have a Returned Services section, and there is a section available for Returned Services on the Ngatea ashes wall. The Miranda cemetery does not contain an RSA section.
