CHAN burials in Waikumete, Auckland

Journal by ngairedith

AUCKLAND is the largest, most populous urban area in New Zealand with 1,354,900 residents, 31% of the country's population. (2010)
It also has the largest Polynesian population of any city in the world.

In Maori Auckland's name is Tamaki Makaurau, or the transliterated version of Auckland, Akarana

The isthmus was settled by Maori around 1350

After the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in February 1840, the new Governor of New Zealand, William Hobson, chose the area as his new capital, and named it after George Eden, Earl of Auckland, then Viceroy of India

However, even in 1840 Port Nicholson (later Wellington) was seen as a better choice for an administrative capital because of its proximity to the South Island and Wellington became the capital in 1865

The Waikumete Cemetery is located in Glen Eden, West Auckland, between Waikumete and Awaroa Roads.
It covers an area of 108 hectares and since 1908 has served as the main cemetery for the Auckland Region

SEARCH the Waikumete Database

It is the largest cemetery in New Zealand and one of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere
