Two 80 vault purpose built walls for the accommodation of ashes have been constructed as part of the Hugh Hayward Domain Settlers Park development, Orchard Road, Ngatea.

Ngatea Ashes Wall

The vaults are in vertical columns of four. Vaults will be issued in a sequential numbered order which will follow the left to right flow of the columns. Each vault can accommodate up to two ashes containers. The vaults can be purchased for a single ashes placement only or for a double ashes placement (placed separately or together at the same time). There is a maximum reservation limit of two vaults per couple/family.

The criteria for purchasing a vault to place ashes or for future placement of ashes in the wall, is that the person must have been a resident of the Hauraki Plains for at least six months. If you live outside this area an application to Council is required and an Out of District fee will apply.

The plaque is made of granite and the size of the plaque is 360mm x 230mm which provides sufficient area to accommodate two inscriptions if required. Final Plaque layout is subject to Council approval.


An Application to Reserve an Ashes Vault will need to be completed to reserve an ashes vault in the Ngatea Ashes Wall.

An Application for Placement of Ashes will need to be completed for each container of ashes and submitted with the plaque wording diagram. Council will organise the inscription on the granite plaque. If you wish to be present at the time of ashes placement, please allow 21 days notice prior to the date of ashes placement for the granite plaque to be inscribed.
