NEW ZEALAND cemeteries on FIND A GRAVE<script src=""></script> :: Genealogy
<< Previous - Next >>


Journal by ngairedith

I have now added individual links to this list of New Zealand cemeteries as found on Find A Grave.
I have also added YouTube footage of the 2006 Funeral Procession up the Waikato River, of the Maori Queen, Dame Te Atairangikaahu, ONZ, DBE, OStJ (23 July 1931-15 Aug 2006), buried in an unmarked grave, as are her ancestors, as a sign of equality with their people (also see Taupiri Urupā)
* a Urupā is a Maori Cemetery usually situated on a Marae

note By 2020 it was near impossible to keep up with adding new cemeteries and individual links to this list because of the sheer number of cemeteries being added in FAG for New Zealand. You can see how 'up-to-date' this list is by noting dates at end. Or go to the continuously up-dated alphabetical list at Find A Grave. The cemeteries there are in alphabetical order. I changed this list (April 2022) to group them into our regions from Northland to Stewart Island. This is the way I would find most helpful in my online, burial search.
* If you know of a cemetery I have missed please leave a message &/or link in the comments.

. note . Waikato is defined as from Coromandel Peninsula in the north to Lake Taupo & King Country in the south. Many boundaries and names were changed in the 2018 census. It is bordered by Auckland to the north, Bay of Plenty to the east and Taranaki, Manawatū-Whanganui and Hawke's Bay to the south. Parts of Rotorua are in Waikato, parts in Bay of Plenty. I have the graves in Bay of Plenty

. Māori: Tūranga-nui-a-Kiwa 'Great standing place of Kiwa.' The settlement was originally known as Turanga and renamed Gisborne in 1870 in honour of NZ Colonial Secretary William Gisborne (1825-1898)
bit of trivia The East Cape - North of Gisborne, around the coast to Opotiki and inland to Te Urewera National Park, has the honour of witnessing the world’s first sunrise every day. Technically, since 2011 when Samoa decided to move position on the international dateline, they became the first country in the world to welcome in the new day, but, due to the curvature of the earth, East Cape is still first to see the sunrise.

* Notes On Tinui
Tinui, formerly Tenui, first place in NZ to have an ANZAC Day cross. On the morning of 25 April 1916, the local vicar, Reverend Basil Ashcroft, led an expedition to place a large metal cross on Tinui Taipo, the 1200ft high promontory behind the village. When the people of Tinui went to church that morning, to hold an Anzac service and later erected a cross on Mt Maunsell, they would have hardly known how significant their actions would become. It is credited by Heritage NZ as being the first ever Anzac monument in New Zealand.

* Commonly called 'The Hutt,' a large area of flat land, Hutt River valley in the Wellington region. The Hutt River flows along an active geologic fault and continues to become the main instrument responsible for the uplift of the Southern Alps. The river is briefly confined by a steep-sided gorge near Taita, before the land opens close to the outflow into Wellington Harbour. The lower valley contains the city of Lower Hutt. Adjacent is Upper Hutt and Petone is on the shoreline of Wellington Harbour.

* Korokoro Catholic Western Hutt Rd, Lower Hutt
~ . The cemetery was closed 1956. They vested part of the land for street purposes, authorised laying a drain through the cemetery, the removal and re-interment of human remains, removal of headstones, monuments and grave surrounds, leveling & planting the grounds and the erection of a common monument. The passage of time means fewer and fewer people know the piece of land at the foot of the Korokoro hill is a cemetery and is, therefore, sacred land.

~ note . there is a mass grave (unmarked) at Andersons Bay for (some of) the Seacliff Lunatic Asylum Patients, (an asylum by the sea). It contains only 132 bodies, but from completion of the main block in 1884 there must have been 100s more. On 8 Dec 1942, 37 women lost their lives in a deadly fire because they were trapped in a locked ward (2 escaped). There was no funeral service, stigma often meant families did not acknowledge they were there, a tree was planted with a plaque in memory of the 37 women.

Auckland Island, is 465km south of the South Island. It is part of the New Zealand subantarctic area.

* Enderby cemetery aka Hardwicke cemetery, Port Ross.
Port Ross is a natural harbour on Auckland Island, a subantarctic chain that forms part of the New Zealand Outlying Islands. Guarding the mouth of Port Ross are Rose Island, Enderby Island, Ewing Island and the tiny Ocean Island. The harbour is the most well-established congregation ground for southern right whales in New Zealand waters.
In 1842 members of the Ngāti Mutunga Māori arrived in Port Ross from the Chatham Islands with Moriori slaves in an attempt to establish a settlement. In the late 1840s, an agricultural and whaling community set up in Erebus Cove, on the harbour and named Hardwicke. Due to the inhospitable climate, the settlement was abandoned within three years. A cemetery remains, later used to bury victims of shipwrecks. Survivors of the 1866 wreck of the 'General Grant' set up a camp in the harbour where they lived for 18 months before rescue. Later, castaway depots were established in Port Ross to provide succour for any sailors wrecked or marooned on the islands. In 1887 it provided relief for the survivors of the 'Derry Castle'. It was also one of three sites occupied by the wartime Cape Expedition coastwatching stations established on New Zealand's subantarctic islands.

Campbell Island Motu Ihupuku, is an uninhabited subantarctic island of New Zealand and the main island of the Campbell Island group. It covers 112.68km2 and is surrounded by numerous stacks, rocks and islets like Dent Island, Folly Island (or Folly Islands), Isle de Jeanette-Marie and Jacquemart Island, the latter being the southernmost extremity of New Zealand. The island is mountainous, rising to over 500 metres in the south. A long fiord, Perseverance Harbour, nearly bisects it, opening out to sea on the east coast.
The island is listed with the New Zealand Outlying Islands and is an immediate part of NZ, not part of any region or district, but instead Area Outside Territorial Authority. It is the closest piece of land to the antipodal point of the UK and Ireland, meaning that the furthest away city is Limerick, Ireland. It was discovered in 1810 by Captain Frederick Hasselborough of the sealing brig Perseverance, which was owned by shipowner Robert Campbell's Sydney-based company Campbell & Co (the Island's name). Captain Hasselborough drowned 4 Nov 1810 in Perseverance Harbour on the south of the island, along with a young woman and a boy.
The island became a seal hunting base and the seal population was almost totally eradicated. The sealing era lasted 1810-1912. The whaling boom extended 1830s & 1840s. In 1874, the island was visited by a French scientific expedition intending to view the transit of Venus. Much of the island's topography is named after aspects of, or people connected with, the expedition. In 1840 Campbell Island was the last landfall before the Ross expedition explored the Antarctic.

The Chatham Islands are an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean about 800km east of NZ's South Island and has been part of New Zealand since 1841. The archipelago consists of about ten Islands within an approximate 60km radius, the largest of which are Chatham Island and Pitt Island (Rangiauria). They include New Zealand's easternmost point, the Forty-Fours. Some of the islands, formerly cleared for farming, are now preserved as nature reserves to conserve some of the unique flora and fauna.

Papawai's Urupa is situated 3k east of Greytown at Papawai and the name of the Urupa is Rangiurunga.

I am the chair of the trust that looks after the Urupa, the urupa is named by Whatahoro Jury in the late 1800s in the Maori Land Court hearings, and it is now Gazetted as such in the Maori Land Court.
