THE OAMARU CEMETERY , which has frontages to Greta and Test Streets, and to the town boundary, was opened about the year 1860. It is a triangular plot of ground, containing twelve acres, and is well kept, being planted with ornamental trees and flower borders. There are two entrances - one on the north, and the other on the east; and the caretaker's residence is in Test Street, opposite the north entrance.

About this Free-Space Page

This free space page for Oamaru Cemetery was created to document the life and times of our ancestors that are interred there. The New Zealand Cemeteries Team is part of the Global Cemeteries Project.

This page is a work in progress, and will remain so until the Table of Interments (below) is completed. The Table of Interments is a sortable listing of persons interred at this cemetery, some or all of whom are linked to existing WikiTree profiles. Although all grave markers in this cemetery are being photographed, the photos can only be displayed for persons with existing WikiTree profiles. If you know of a person interred at this cemetery that should be linked to an existing WikiTree profile, or needs to have a profile created for them, please contact one of the Cemeterists for The New Zealand Cemeteries Project.

To Do

Project members are needed to:

  • Assist with data collection and grave marker transcriptions
Additional photography and GPS data collection is needed, and previously collected data can be sent by email to other members willing to assist with transcriptions.
  • Link existing profiles or create new profiles for persons listed in the Table of Interments
When complete, everyone listed in the Table of Interments will be linked to their own WikiTree profile, and to a photo of that person's corresponding grave marker. The created profiles can include other genealogical and biographical information as well as a listing of sources for documentation.
  • Validate links and transcription information
Profile and photo links and transcribed information needs to be cross-checked to ensure accuracy.
  • Create an audio/video tour of the cemetery
Record a virtual tour of the cemetery that can be viewed as downloadable media on computers, tablets or other device. Such a tour would take the viewer around the cemetery to explore the history of the people buried here. Background information can be supplied. Those with mobile internet access can access online links to more information.
