Notes:
Situated in the Marsden Valley, behind Stoke, this is the main cemetery in Nelson city. It caters for burials and has a Memorial Walk of plaques for those who have been cremated.

Marsden Valley Cemetery was opened in 1952, but many of the large trees, including the redwoods on the Memorial Walk, were planted over 90 years ago.

Marsden Valley is a lawn cemetery and there are guidelines about the size and type of headstone which fit in with the concept of a mown park.

There is a children's area at Marsden Valley. A flowering cherry tree has been planted in an area set aside for people to leave toys and flowers in memory of their little ones. This keeps these items clear of the mown lawns.
