AUCKLAND PET FUNERALS Garden of Remembrance Grave Decoration Policy

Whilst offering a natural and tranquil park to lay your pet to rest, we do not identify with human cemeteries where headstones and ornate memorabilia are an accepted part of the custom and tradition. Instead the property is intended to run into the future (our 200 year project) as a landscaped park with garden features and ambiance. However we do recognise that at the time of the loss, the emotional links of symbols and rituals are an important part of the farewell process especially where children are involved. Artefacts that relate to your pets character and habits are accepted as a temporary part of the passage of grief. GOOD QUALITY ornaments are welcomed and can include natural things like rocks. Plastic ornaments and soft toys will be temporary only and removed by us in due course. Glass containers for flowers are not accepted due to the risk of injury. Plants can be placed, but with the understanding that they are small, local and may be temporary as the shape and schemes of the park and the plants grow and change. Barriers for the isolation of a grave are not permitted. Pebbles or shell ground covers are OK as a localised weed suppressant and dressing. If unsure please talk to us so we can give you input as to what may be suited to the site or, that what you are considering, is suitable. Please be assured that we endeavour to provide the best ambiance for all our visitors and we request that you respect this.
