Burials at Pauatahanui Burial Ground

"If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster."

The list below is based on a transcription of headstones and plaques which was made by members of the Porirua Branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists, December 2003, and updated in March 2011. The list includes memorials to some  who are buried elsewhere, including some from World War I.  The list also includes unmarked graves thought to be those of John Sydney DEATH, and James and Sarah Ann BARROW.

The cemetery records have now been incorporated into the Council's cemetery database, along with headstone photographs taken in November 2006 and updated in November 2011. You can search Pauatahanui Burial Records from the link below by choosing a name.

This list is arranged alphabetically by surname, and then first name(s), and shows the date of death and the age at death, where this information is provided on the headstone or memorial plaque.

Update: 12/3/12

The Pauatahanui Burial Ground records have been renumbered.  They were previously in areas East and West.  Now there is one area named "Cemetery".  The cemetery database has multiple images of some plots where there is a monument and several plaques.  However the website can only display one image at the current time.  The maps of the cemetery are now available online in two formats - with aerial map and as a line drawing.  See links below.
