At Waikato Stonecraft we create memorial headstones and plaques across New Zealand and the Pacific Islands

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.  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.

Where do I start?

We understand that ordering a memorial headstone is not something people do all the time, so our aim is to make the process easy and stress free for you.

We help with council bylaws applying to the cemetery on your behalf, as some have a restrictions on size and sometimes the design of the headstone or plaque.

Do I need to apply for a council bylaw?

We will apply to the council on your behalf for the cemetery and area where the headstone is to be installed, some cemeteries have restriction on headstone and plaque sizes and sometimes even designs.
In most public and private cemetries and Urapa, as long as we adhere to the the size requirements, we are usually able to install any headstone design you like.

Can we install the headstone ourselves?

Most public cemeteries require you to be a qualified, approved contractor to work in council cemeteries, so families are generally not allowed to install in a public cemetery. We also work extensively in private cemeteries and urupa, families are often able to do their own installations at these locations. We can give advise on the best way to install when required.

Will we receive a quote before we say yes?

We will give you a quotation on the memorial you choose at the time of inquiry. These quotations are valid for 30 days, although we often will honor a quote outside of this time as we realise that families need to get together to discuss what they require and this can take a bit of time.
