Cemetery History

Taruheru Cemetery is the Council's primary burying ground. It officially opened for burials in 1915, though some burials had occurred before then. Sized at 15 hectares of land, it is the largest cemetery in the Council. It replaced the older Makaraka Cemetery located nearby.

There are 12 Commonwealth War Graves Commission burials of the 1914-1918 war and 21 of the 1939-1945 war here.

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.
