Ashes

What happens to ashes after cremation?

Rosewood Funeral Home cares for the ashes until we receive written instruction about their final resting place from you.

We can help you with the decision making process and with carrying out your wishes.

Contact Rosewood Funeral Home to discuss options

What are some possible options for ashes?

Occasionally ashes are taken overseas.  Customs require a letter from the funeral director, contact us regarding the necessary arrangements.

What does the New Zealand law allow ?   

The placement of ashes needs to be done with sensitivity to the use of the land. 

You may inter or scatter ashes on your own private land.

To inter or scatter ashes on public land permission is required.
