Our cemetery team is asking for people to check the names listed on one of its historic cemeteries.
Updated: 15/12/2015 10:58 a.m.

The Whangarei District Council cemetery team is continuing to make great progress on our historic cemetery programme.

Restoration work has been completed on memorial stones at the Kamo cemetery, corrections and additions have been made to the Kioreroa cemetery memorial and research continues on the management of the Ngunguru Cape Horn cemetery.

Local genealogist Joan Leversedge has also continued her research of the Pioneers cemetery, known as the Mission Ground Cemetery, Selwyn Avenue. Joan has proposed a number of names for addition to the memorial and we list these below. If you have comment, suggestions or information regarding these or any of those already recorded on the memorial we would love to hear from you. This site is also scheduled for a new identification sign, garden renovation and seating. It has also been suggested that a fence be erected along the boundary of the cemetery and we would appreciate your feedback on this proposal.
