Rangiwahia Cemetery

Rangiwahia - meaning "cloud piercer", or "piercing the sky" - is the northern most township of the Manawatu. The town is situated 6km south of Karewarewa and 53km north east of Feilding, and was first surveyed in 1885 when the surveyors set up camp at a site known as "Peep-O-Day", with spectacular views of Mount Ruapehu. In 1892 it took coaches three hours to drive from Kimbolton to Rangiwahia ( a distance of 26km).

The Rangiwahia Cemetery is in Wairaki Street, Rangiwahia 4774.

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 0 profiles listed on Wikitree for this cemetery, which is well short of the number of interments. Findagrave has 179 entries, and Billion Graves has 202. Irwin-2099 08:35, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

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