Cemetery Fees

Council provides pleasant, attractive cemeteries of which the community can be proud.

Administering cemeteries involves ensuring interments are carried out to an acceptable standard and that cemetery grounds are maintained and enhanced.

Please note: an additional fee will be charged if paying by credit card or paywave. Manawatu District Council does not receive any part of this fee.
