Pukerimu Lawn Cemetery

The cemetery occupies 6.57 hectares of land, situated amongst gently sloping farmland on the main road to Waihi. Within the cemetery are sections for Ashes Burials, Burials, and Returned Services Association (RSA) Burials. Some of the older graves are in very steep sections of the hill. The RSA burials are located on the hill via another entrance. The main part of the cemetery is on the corner of State Highway 2 and Old Reservoir Road, with access being down Old Reservoir Road.

The cemetery was established prior to 1885 when the land was owned by the Thames County Council, as the public cemetery for the surrounding rural area including Paeroa. Ownership was subsequently transferred to the Ohinemuri County Council, and then to Hauraki District Council following local government amalgamation in 1989. The Council has delegated administration to the Paeroa Ward Committee.

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.

  • For a list of Interments in alphabetical and table format please refer to the attached page (which has yet to be created - Note the interments list is currently a work in progress)
  • When this page was created there were 51 profiles listed on Wikitree for this cemetery, which is well short of the number of interments. FindAgrave has 1339 entries, and BillionGraves has 74.
    • Progress as at 6 March 2021 - 83 profiles on WikiTree, 4784 on FindAGrave, and 848 on BillionGraves

The overall progress of this endeavour will be found on the NZ Cemeteries Team Progress page.
