Crematorium

Purewa Crematorium

Purewa started providing crematorium services in 1957 and was only the second facility of its type in Auckland.

Regular major upgrades of equipment and technology ensures Purewa provides the latest fully computerised cremation services which meet all the air discharge regulations and bylaws of the Auckland Council.

Following the service of your choice in one of our chapels, The casket can be lowered to the committal position allowing funeral guests to come forward and pay their last respects. Family and friends may wish to place a flower or rosemary (the herb of remembrance) onto the casket. Following cremation your loved one’s ashes will be held by the funeral director until you are ready to collect them.

When you feel the time is right your family can select a final resting place and memorial for your loved one’s ashes within Purewa’s beautiful park-like, serene surroundings. Our well-trained staff are able to assist you with these options.
