Under The Rata Memorial Garden
Under the Rata is an exceptional Christchurch memorial garden created for the remembrance of loved ones.
Nestled within the grounds of Lamb & Hayward’s Westpark Chapel, the memorial garden has been architecturally designed to provide a respectful resting place for the interment of ashes, or an area for memorialisation; a remarkable and enduring asset for the Christchurch community.
We believe that having a focal point for remembering, offers people both resolution and a legacy for future generations. At Under the Rata memorial garden there are unique and varied options for alternative forms of ceremony and commemoration.
The Christchurch memorial garden provides ample car parking and paved surfaces throughout, ensuring easy access to restful areas for reflection and contemplation.
With seating and space for gathering, the Atrium has been designed as a space for personalised services. The memorial garden offers the opportunity to hold small private committals, unveilings, or memorial services followed by refreshments.
Individual alcoves which allow ash interments to be securely held above ground and sealed with a granite plaque, providing a generous space for engraving options.
