the V surnames in KAWERAU Cemetery, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

Journal by ngairedith

KAWERAU is a town in the Bay of Plenty region of the North Island of New Zealand.
The town is situated 100km SE of Tauranga and 58km E of Rotorua

Kawerau is one of the youngest towns in New Zealand. It was founded in 1953 as a mill town for the new Tasman pulp and paper mill. The site for the mill was chosen because of the ready availability of geothermal energy, water from the Tarawera River and the large supply of pine timber from the nearby Kaingaroa forest.

Unlike most other towns of its size, Kawerau was carefully planned before construction. The town was built with an impressive number of facilities, to accommodate a multinational specialist workforce.

The mill continues to drive the local economy and greatly influences the fortunes of the town. The town's population peaked in the early 1980's (8718 in the 1981 census) but has declined significantly since then due to the restructuring of the mill and associated industries
