    Our Process

    Daniel 3 & Green Koru Headstone

    At Sanctuary Memorials, our creative and compassionate team will work with you to navigate the process of selecting the monument design that best reflects the life and personality of your loved one.

    After an initial session where we discuss your ideas, our artist will create a drawing. Once you can see that we have fully understood your vision, our experienced stonemasons will begin constructing your customised headstone – this part of the process takes around 6-8 weeks.
    While the stonemason works, the artistic, photographic, and written portions of the work will be proofed so that they can be added as soon as your monument is ready.

    Once you have approved the final product, we will ship your piece to our Whangarei team, who will carry out the installation and any further service you require.

    Customised Headstones Supplied & Installed

    At Sanctuary Memorials, we are here to help you secure the headstone or memorial plaque that best honours your loved one and captures the essence of what they mean to you.

    We can guide and support you throughout the entire process of designing and creating your tribute. This can be done at one of our Auckland locations, or we can meet with you online or over the telephone – whatever works best for you.

    Our Whangarei Installation Team

    Your Sanctuary Memorials Whangarei headstone installer will have all the information required to offer personalised service for you as you move through the installation and unveiling process for your headstone.

    Observing Traditions, Regulations and Boundaries

    In Whangarei, we work with caretakers, families, and councils to observe cultural traditions, boundaries, and regulations throughout the installation process and for further inscriptions.

    When possible, adding an inscription to a monument will be done on-site. Every effort is made to ensure your loved one’s monument is not removed from the Urupā or Cemetery. We understand that it may not always be possible to make this work, but we are here to help in any way we can.
