Closed Cemeteries

Council has three closed cemeteries in the following areas:

Kaikora North Cemetery, Otane

This cemetery is situated adjacent to the Wellington-Napier railway line, opposite the intersection of Carruthers St and Knorpe Street Otane. It was closed following the last burial in 1903. The headstone and surrounds had deteriorated to such an extent they had became a danger. Many headstones were made out of wood and were destroyed by grass fires caused by sparks from the passing steam trains. Those headstones able to be salvaged are now at the Otane Cemetery on State Highway 2. Recently a memorial has been erected on the Kaikora Cemetery site along with a board listing the known burials.

Hampton Bush Cemetery, Tikokino

This cemetery is situated in Holden Road, Tikokino on the right going towards the present Tikokino Cemetery. The last burial in this cemetery was in 1934 and in 1964 a memorial was erected listing all those buried at this cemetery.

St Peter's Church Cemetery, Waipawa

Situated in Church Street, Waipawa. This cemetery was once the St Peter's Church cemetery and was given to the Council to look after. The last burial occurred in 1974. All broken headstones have been removed and replaced with a memorial which lists all the names on the removed headstones. Not all headstones were removed and some family graves remain undisturbed. This cemetery has a park like atmosphere with a large protected oak tree growing inside the gateway.
