From unique, specially carved memorials to traditional headstones
We understand that ordering a headstone is not something people do all the time, so our aim is to make the process easy and stress free for you.
We specialise in a wide range of memorial work, from unique, specially carved memorials, through to traditional granite headstones, cremation and burial plaques. We can custom design, and have an extensive range of sizes and colours to suit all budgets.
Call us or pop in to one of our showrooms and we can talk about what memorial you'd like for your loved one, whether it's an upright headstone, plaque, cover, temple, desktop memorial or an urn or ornament. We can talk to you about timeframes and payment plans if needed. We can get it sorted for you.

Your questions answered. How long will it take? Do you ship to the Pacific Islands? Can I have a photograph on the headstone?
At Waikato Stonecraft we create custom, New Zealand-made headstones and plaques.
We can help you choose or design the most appropriate memorial headstone for your loved one.
We're proud to be the longest serving retail and factory headstone business in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty areas. Not only do we ship New Zealand-wide but we ship to all Pacific Island destinations including Samoa, Tonga and Fiji. We can also ship to Australia. An indication of shipping cost can be supplied at the time of designing.
Our Hamilton and Rotorua outlets have a dedicated on-site graphics team, so you can view a draft layout of your headstone's design before you buy.
We are fully trained NZQA qualified and NZMMMA registered and take pride in our craftmanship. As an NZMMMA member, we are bound by the Association terms and quality restrictions. We guarantee each memorial will meet your 100% satisfaction. We are proud to have a City and Guilds qualified Stonemason on our team.
We can install the memorial or you can choose to do this yourselves. Please note that most public, council-run cemeteries do not allow anyone but a qualified monumental mason to install a headstone for Health and Safety reasons.

"Hi Craig, awesome job, thanks heaps, looks all good.
"Thank you very much for arranging to place the plaque at the Hamilton Park Cemetery in time for our interment on Saturday. The plaque looks lovely there on the edge of the garden. We now all have a place marked for generations to come to visit their whanau. It was a pleasure dealing with you."
