[edit] History

This was originally the Wesleyan Methodist burial ground, bought after the dispute with the Anglicans. The Free Methodist interments began in the East Belt Cemetery some years later. The union of the Free Methodists and Wesleyans took place in 1896, and since then this has been Rangiora Methodists’ resting place.

Some pioneer family names are to be found among the headstones.
