Cemeteries

Waipa District Council administers and manages 10 Lawn Cemeteries, including Hautapu, and now has an online cemetery database to assist people searching for plot locations of deceased friends and relatives in Waipa cemeteries.

On an 1864 map from National Archives Wellington there is a cemetery marked near the two redoubts at Pukerimu. Two soldiers died while they were stationed at Pukerimu – one shot himself and the other drowned. Perhaps they were buried at this spot. In the two years after the 3rd Waikato Militia settled in Camp Cambridge eleven soldiers died and were buried at the Cambridge West (Leamington) cemetery. The first burial in the cemetery at Cambridge East was Robert Wilson, 4 July 1866.  

For more information on these linked indexes contact Cambridge Museum with as much relevant detail as possible, quoting the cemetery concerned.
