Cemetery History

The approval for the land of Motu Cemetery was announced on the 6th of December 1906.

The oldest headstone recorded in 1983 was for Walter Fisher who died in September 1909.

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.
