Latitude: -41.5313163, Longitude: 173.8627569

Notes:
Fairhall Cemetery is Marlborough's principal cemetery. Located in rural surroundings, the cemetery provides for traditional memorial burials with a lawn cemetery, picturesque gardens for memorial ashes, family ashes beams, a commemorative still-born area and an RSA section.

A commemorative wall (plaque only no interment) is currently being planned and landscape development is ongoing with the use of local stone, suitable trees and visitor-friendly signage.

With a backdrop of the Wither Hills and surrounded by vineyards, the cemetery's expansive lawns and established plantings give it an attractive, restful, park-like character. The cemetery is 10-15 minutes' drive from the centre of Blenheim, along New Renwick Road. The cemetery is managed by Marlborough District Council.
