[edit] Christchurch

The Banks Peninsula Council merged with Christchurch City in 6th March 2006. As there are many cemeteries in Christchurch City, for clarity I have split the list into the old Banks Peninsula and City areas and further subdivided it into council managed and other sites.

[edit] Banks Peninsula Area

These cemeteries were in the old Banks Peninsula district (date of first known burial in brackets).

[edit] Selwyn

I would like to thank the Selwyn District Council for permission to use their survey "Water & Sanitary Services Assessments: Cemeteries, 2006" in preparing these articles. The survey describes the 19 cemeteries that the Selwyn Council owns within the district. It also lists 11 cemeteries in the district adjacent to, and owned by a local Church, ten by the Anglican Church and one by the Catholic Church, and one Maori owned site.

There are also 4 other cemeteries not listed in the survey.

[edit] Maori Cemeteries

The council lists three Maori reserves set aside as cemeteries within the Waimakariri District, these cemeteries are administered by Te Ngai Tuahuriri Runanga:

Kaiapoi (Te Kai a te Atua) Cemetery. NZSG: Q06.04 (situated at 137 Old North Road, Kaiapoi)

Tuahiwi (Te Uru Ti) Cemetery. NZSG: Q06.10 (the main cemetery, which is situated on the corner of Tuahiwi Road and Greens Road, Tuahiwi)

Tuahiwi (Te-pa-tu-o-Hawaiki) Cemetery. NZSG: Q06.11 (location unknown)


The CWGS raises the possibility of perhaps two additional cemeteries at Tuahiwi: "The cemetery [Tuahiwi (Chief) on Greens Rd] is the most important of four Maori cemeteries near Tuahiwi (now Kaiapoi pa), a famous Maori centre. There are 4 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war and 1 of the 1939-1945 war here.":

I believe the CWGS to be misleading: Tuahiwi Chief is almost certainly Te Uru Ti (on the corner of Tuahiwi & Greens Rds) and the fourth is probably Te Kai a te Atua at nearby Kaiapoi.

Can anyone confirm how many Maori Cemeteries there are in the district?
