Te Aroha Cemetery monuments

A series of earthquakes that struck recently have caused significant damage to a number of older monuments at the Te Aroha Cemetery. These monuments have either moved from their original positions or have been damaged. As a result, we ask that everyone stay clear of the marked monuments until they have been assessed for safety.

We understand that these monuments hold a significant value to families and individuals who have loved ones buried in the area. Therefore, we are working diligently to notify families of the deceased about the situation. If you are a descendant or know of descendants of persons in this area, please contact the Council on 0800 746 467.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time.
