Ruru Lawn Cemetery west of the War Graves section.


Semi-circular rose garden with a stone and timber pergola at the head. Each rose has a bronze marker with the name of a person who lost their life in the Ballantynes Fire of 1947.

The pergola, which has plaques depicting the victims' names, collapsed in the earthquake on February 22, 2011. The Council has plans to restore the memorial and hopes to have the work completed by the end of 2013.
