A Free-Space page to record interments and history of Āwhitu Cemetery.

Āwhitu Cemetery

Also known as Āwhitu Central Cemetery and The Māori War and Pioneers Cemetery.

Āwhitu Central Church is situated in a picturesque setting on the Āwhitu Peninsula, overlooking the Manukau Harbour and close to the west coast and Tasman Sea. The church was opened in 1877 on land donated by George Garland. Previously church services had been held in the school.

When local resident Henry George Garland died in 1876 there was no consecrated ground or church in Āwhitu, and he and his son, who also died before the church was buillt, were interred in Onehunga cemetery, with a memorial later erected in Āwhitu.

New Zealand Cemeteries Team

This page is maintained by the New Zealand Cemeteries Team, who are part of the Global Cemeteries Project (and the Oceania Cemeteries Team). The aim is is to document the final resting place of those buried in New Zealand, to ensure that each cemetery has its own free-space page, which is linked to the category structure for Global Cemeteries, and that those buried in them are also gathered in the correct category.

  • Currently there are 9 profiles listed on Wikitree for this cemetery, which is well short of the number of interments. Findagrave has 185 entries, and BillionGraves has 22. Irwin-2099 23:31, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

The overall progress of this endeavour will be found on the NZ Cemeteries Team Progress page.

Have taken, ( hastily ) pics of all the markers in this cemetery and am slowly adding them to the freespace page. Yes, some of them cannot be deciphered as presented, and will be transcribed in due course.
