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 10 profiles listed on Wikitree for this cemetery, which is well short of the number of interments. Findagrave has 661 entries, and Billion Graves has 793. It is estimated there are at least 800 interments here. Irwin-2099 09:21, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Currently there are 82 profiles listed on WikiTree for this cemetery, which is progress toward the total number of interments. FindaGrave has 673 entries, and Billion Graves has 793. It is therefore estimated that there are at least 800 interments here. Irwin-2099 20:43, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

These are some of the best grave photographs I have seen anywhere. Thanks for all your work. The brother of my great-great-grandmother James Graham (abt.1839-1901) emigrated from Scotland to New Zealand in 1864. He is buried in this cemetery and you have a nice photo of his grave marker.
