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 4 profiles listed on Wikitree for this cemetery, which is well short of the number of interments. Findagrave has 1112 entries, and Billion Graves has 327. Irwin-2099 08:36, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

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