Towai Cemetery
Towai, Northland Province, New Zealand

Lat: 35.5000, Long: 174.1308, (Towai town)

Contributed by Mal Ferris, Jan 26, 2002 [aidyn98@xtra.co.nz]. Total records = 37.

Turn left off State Highway 1 at Towai, aprox 30km north from Whangarei on road signposted "Maromaku" (Maromaku Rd). Aprox 2 km down this road on right hand side.

I have transcribed all marked graves from tombstones when I walked the cemetery in Jan 2002. There are a few unmarked graves around.

In the year 2000 the North Auckland district had a project, and the cemetery was cleaned up. It was previously very overgrown and had been closed since 1953. The cemetery has been rededicated and reopened from 2000. New gates were erected, gifted by the local Agricultural Association.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
