Location: Otahuhu, Auckland, New Zealand
Surnames/tags: Cemeteries New_Zealand Auckland
The Public cemetery in Otahuhu is situated on a block bordered by Atkinson Road, Luke Street and Church Street. The cemetery contains the official war graves of 5 men who served in the New Zealand forces during the First World War, and 9 from the Second World War. (For a list see the Wargraves page for Otahuhu Public Cemetery).
|Church Street Entrance|
On the opposite side of Church Street, which is the eastern border of the public cemetery, is the Holy Trinity Anglican Cemetery (see the Free-space page for that cemetery for more information on the Holy Trinity Memorial Park).
There were two cemeteries in Otahuhu, Anglican and Catholic, but a need was apparent for interments for those of different denominations. Thus, the 3 acre Otahuhu Public Cemetery was constituted on 7 July 1880, to the west of the 1 acre Anglican Cemetery at the corner of Church and Luke Streets.
The first Trustees were John Gordon, Joseph Elmsley M.D., Andrew Mackenzie Donald, Thomas Stringer and George Hotham.
The Otahuhu Road Board administered the Public Cemetery from 1 August 1894 to 1912. By the 1890’s Anglicans and Catholics from the Otahuhu area were also being buried in the Public Cemetery, but unfortunately burial records date only from 7 February 1894. The Otahuhu Borough Council administered the Public Cemetery from 1912 to 1989 when it joined the new Auckland City. The Cemetery was closed in 1986. The Auckland City Council retains the records of those buried in the Public Cemetery.

About this Cemetery Page
This is a Free Space Page to record interments and link to the profiles of those buried at Otahuhu Public Cemetery.
This free space page for the Otahuhu Public Cemetery is part of The New Zealand Cemeteries Project which is a subproject of the larger Global Cemeteries Project.
This page is a work in progress, and will remain so until the Table of Interments 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 grave markers in this cemetery are being photographed, priority is given to photos 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 Lianne Trevarthen for assistance.
Project members are needed to:
- Assist with data collection and grave marker transcriptions
- Additional photography 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.
Tasks Completed and in Progress
