Te Puke Cemetery is located on Landscape Road just off of State Highway Two, in Te Puke, which is in Bay of Plenty, on the east coast of the north island, 18 miles south of Tauranga, New Zealand.

This cemetery began in the late 1890s with the earliest burial being that of Mary Vercoe on 23 Aug 1892. Burial records and Plan are held by the Western Bay of Plenty District Council, in Te Puke.

Burials are still taking place, although a new cemetery opened in 1971 at Dudley Vercoe Drive, Te Puke.

This is a complete record of headstone readings only, up to Sept of 2003.

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.
