Access to Columbaria during Chapel construction

As a condition of our Resource Consent, we are required to fence off the oak trees to keep them protected during construction of the Bishop Selwyn Chapel.  Unfortunately, this has meant fencing in one of the columbaria.  Our columbaria are specially designed repositories for ashes, located beneath the trees at the Newmarket end of the Cathedral precinct.

We are now pleased to advise that Aspec Construction have this week installed a gate into the fence, so both columbaria are now accessible for public access.

If you have any queries or concerns regarding the columbaria, please contact the Cathedral Secretary on
