Location: Woodend, Canterbury
Woodend Methodist Cemetery
The Woodend Methodist Cemetery is attached to the Woodend Methodist Church situated on the Main North Road (State Highway 1) at the North end of Woodend.
A wooden church was originally built around 1864, enlarged in 1877, and replaced by a brick church in 1911. The Canterbury Earthquake in 2010 caused quite some damage to the church and it was closed until restoration was completed at the end of 2018.
The Cemetery is closed for burials.

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 is 1 profile listed on Wikitree for this cemetery, which is well short of the number of interments estimated at this location. On Find-a-Grave there are 280 entries, and Billion Graves has 177 - Stephen King at 06:01, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
The overall progress of this endeavour will be found on the NZ Cemeteries Team Progress page.
