With views across the rose gardens, our Sanctum Vaults are situated on the edge of the Garden of Rest.

Vaults

The Sanctums are above ground memorial vaults, with enough room for two sets of ashes. Each vault comes with a polished granite plaque that can be inscribed with a personalised inscription or design with a floral tribute vase fitted in the base. There are some standard designs to select from and families can also attach a photo plaque with a picture of those commemorated.

The containers must be made from a non-biodegradable material such as plastic, china, glass or metal and should not exceed 12" in height.

Due to the nature of the natural granite, the only items permitted are the fresh cut flowers for the vase provided. Any other items found may be removed without notice.

Unauthorised items placed on or around the Sanctum may cause damage to the stone work and should this happen, the lease holder will be responsible for the cost of replacing the memorial vault.

Leases

The Sanctums are leased for a period of 15 years, which can be renewed when this period expires. We will write to lease holders inviting them renew or terminate the lease. Please remember to keep us updated should you change address.

If you choose not to renew your lease, please contact us so we can make arrangements for the care of the ashes and the plaque.
