Mangere Lawn Cemetery

Mangere Lawn Cemetery is one of the oldest public cemeteries in the South Auckland area. It was opened in 1890 and the first burial took place in 1894, with the burial of Mrs Louisa Oxenham.

The first Trustees were James Robertson, Matthew Middlewood Kirkbride, Joseph Ambury, Charles Washer and William Ferguson ´╗┐´╗┐Massey. These men were also amongst some of the first European settlers in the Mangere area and served on many other committees in the district such as the Road Board, School Committee and County Council.

The Mangere Lawn Cemetery Trust Board is, in 2017 and onwards, undergoing a review of facilities at the cemetery. The Columbarium is no longer falling within the design parameters that it was created to achieve, and the existing ash interments and associated plaques are being transferred to the Mountain View Ash Gardens. If you know of or have relatives whose ashes are interred in the Columbarium Wall, please do contact the Board by email, using the contact form on the website linked above. A list of interments in the Columbarium can be found HERE.
