Roadside Crosses  / Temporary Grave Markers
Roadside crosses are one of the most recent, and most debated, additions to the landscape of memory. The origins of the practice of erecting crosses in the landscape in memory of road accident victims have been traced to a road safety campaign in Tauranga in 1989, and it appears to have developed into a phenomenon almost unique to New Zealand.
While there are some examples in the United States and Australia, New Zealand has adopted the practice more extensively. The crosses have been controversial. While grieving families may see it as their right to erect a tribute or memorial cross on the roadside, for some it as an intrusion in the public landscape.
There are also mixed messages about the appropriateness of a cross as a symbol. Crosses are associated with sites of burial, are symbols of the Christian faith, and according to an Anglican minister who was opposed to the crosses, they are "spooky". From a road safety point of view the crosses are also viewed ambivalently. On one hand, as safety officer for Transit, John Grumrnit points out, the tributes or memorials can exacerbate already dangerous points on the road: "Crosses tend to be on dangerous sites where people should not be stopping vehicles or wandering around.
Gardens and other adornments can also interfere with roadside maintenance." (The Press, 16 April 1998). But on the other hand, crosses can act as warnings to others. Doctors in the Selwyn District in Canterbury erected 35 crosses on roadsides in the region to represent crash victims and remind people to drive safely.
One concern over the roadside crosses is that they are becoming surrogates for graves, heavily adorned, accompanied by gardens, photographs and other mementoes.
Transit New Zealand has developed a policy on roadside crosses, including recommended materials, size and siting. The guidelines stipulate that the only inscription on the cross should be the date of the accident. Focusing on pragmatic rather than emotional issues, Transit New Zealand adopts an objective position regarding the landscape of memory,' recommending that the memorial is removed "when the purpose of the cross has been fulfilled." (State Highway Control Manual 8/98)
Another memorial landscape where the memory is detached from the grave site itself is the Living Memorial Mau Mahara project, developed by Lamb & Hayward Funeral Directors and the Department of Conservation.

Roadside Memorial Crosses
You have four options about what happens to your body. You could choose to be buried in the earth or at sea, to be cremated, or to donate your body to medical science.
The option you choose depends on your religious and personal choices.
Burial
Burial is still a popular choice - it gives family members a permanent memorial to visit.
Burial requires buying a plot and usually a headstone or monument marker. An internent fee is also payable: this covers the cost of digging the grave, and ongoing maintenance of the plot. Some people may choose to prepare the burial plot for the deceased themselves. Preparing the burial plot can often be therapeutic for the deceased's survivors.
Some sections of cemeteries have been made available for different religious groups. This is especially important for the Muslim community, who have to meet the Islamic requirement for a body to be buried facing Mecca.
Natural burials
Instead of headstones or monuments set in a neatly manicured lawn, natural cemeteries are usually planted with trees which grow to create a park. Bodies are buried as close as possible to the active soil layer to aid natures recycling. Bodies are not embalmed, and are buried in either a shroud or an untreated wooden coffin.
Cremation
After cremation, the ashes are broken up and put into a container for placing in an urn. Your funeral director can provide a range of urns, or you can choose one of your own.
A relative of the deceased or an executor must complete an application for cremation. A certificate of cremation is also required - this is issued by a doctor for a fee and is in addition to the death certificate. Both the cremation application and cremation certificate must be filed with the crematorium before the body may be cremated.
Cremation means that the ashes can be buried, placed in a memorial, separated among family members, or scattered. When scattering ashes you must make sure that the area you have chosen is not close to traditional Maori food-gathering grounds. You may also need to ask for permission to scatter ashes in a park or sports ground.
Burial at sea
The New Zealand coastline has areas that are specifically designated for burials at sea, and burials must take place only within these "marine burial locations". A boat or helicopter is normally used for this purpose and a special type of casket is required. Your funeral director can advise you on this.
Donation
Arrangements for donating a body to science must be made before the person dies. New Zealand medical schools don't require constant donations of bodies, and there are a range of criteria that must be met (such as weight restrictions). Funeral costs are obviously much lower here, as no coffin, plot, cremation, or interment is needed.
An alternative to donating your body is to donate individual organs. Your funeral director can tell you more about these options.

At Art@Altitude, we can make your loved ones cremation ashes in a single or several sculptures to divide evenly amongst your family. They are all completely sealed and treated to insure than there is not degradation or leaching and can withstand all extreme weather conditions. Can be placed or hung both indoors or outdoors making your loved ones ashes a permanent Tribute or memorial. Contact us for more details
