An important message for families with memorial plaques in the old octagonal structure at Purewa.
This memorial, which holds 109 bronze plaques, has developed structural and drainage problems. The Purewa Cemetery Trust Board has agreed that it be taken down and replaced with a specialmemorial garden and seating for families. The Board will reposition the bronze plaques in exactly the same groupings on the north facing wall of the newly completed red brick and black marble columbarium, just a few meters away.
Additional seating and planting will be created opposite the repositioned bronze plaques to further beautify the area.
If affected families have any queries please visit the Purewa Administration Office or contact 09 528 5599, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
