Hutt City is proud to honour the service of the veteran community. Find out how veteran burials work.
There is a Services Cemetery for Returned Service People at Taitā Cemetery, on Kowhai St, Naenae.
You also have the option for memorial-only plots in cases where there is no burial.
RSA burial plots and Ashes Wall
TheReturning Services Association (RSA) sections of Taitā cemetery are for body and ash burials.
To be buried in a Services Cemetery you must have served as a member of Her Majesty's Forces on certain deployments, or be the spouse or partner of someone who has. You can only use Bronze plaques and/or headstones in these areas.

You cannot scatter ashes in any cemetery or Council facility, including garden areas, lawns and streams.
