A public memorial service for former All Blacks winger Jonah Lomu will be held at Auckland's Eden Park stadium next Monday.

New Zealand prime minister John Key said the service, at the ground that hosted the 2011 Rugby World Cup final, would be "open to all members of the public who want to remember the significant contribution Jonah made not only to rugby here and overseas, but also to the wider community through his work with charities".

A private family funeral for Lomu, 40, who died on Wednesday, will be held on Tuesday December 1.
