Several graveyards in the Marlborough region have suffered damage from the 6.6 magnitude earthquake on August 16.
Several gravestones have toppled over or smashed at the Awatere Cemetery on Marama Rd in Seddon.
The entrance to the Seddon War Memorial in Wakefield St has also been damaged.
There are serious cracks in the historic archway over the entrance and some stones have also come down.
The archway has been cordoned until engineers can assess it.
It is the only entrance to the war memorial that will be checked by engineers.
Returned Services Association Marlborough president Ernie Thomson said he believed the Marlborough District Council would get to the memorial as soon as it could.
He believed the site would be ready for next year's annual Anzac Day celebration.
"Making sure people are safe and have water etc is the first priority for council at the moment," Mr Thomson said.
A council spokeswoman said several headstones had been damaged at the Omaka Cemetery as they were unstable. There had also been ground subsidence at Omaka, but council staff were dealing with this.
At the Fairhall Cemetery on New Renwick Rd, the soldier statue in the Fairhall Services Cemetery was at a slight lean. The statue had also been cordoned for public safety.
According to the council spokeswoman, engineer reports would be done and all monuments and graves would be assessed.
If members of the public come across further damage in cemeteries they should report it to council.
