Description

Ruru Lawn Cemetery opened in 1941 and although approaching capacity it is still open for casket and ash burials. The cemetery is open and park-like in appearance. There is a mix of native and exotic tree, including conifers and broadleaves over 15.1427 hectares. Granite and bronze plaques are set either in the lawn or on concrete beams surrounded in loose crushed greywacke chip. It has a large Returned Services area and a small Muslim burial area on the eastern side. Ballantyne’s Fire Memorial is part of the Ruru Lawn Cemetery.
