Ōtaki Cemetery, set on 3.9 hectares of semi-rural land, is the oldest cemetery in Kāpiti. Records of interments date from 1896. The cemetery is administered by the Kāpiti Coast District Council. The cemetery is also now certified as a Natural Burials cemetery with areas of the cemetery set aside for this. "Natural Burials" return the body to the earth in nature’s own way. That means allowing conditions for speedy decomposition, and regeneration of a natural forest above the graves.
Address: 40 Anzac Rd, Otaki 5512
