Waimairi Cemetery

Waimairi Cemetery, on the west side of the city, was opened in 1900.

It comprises three main areas. The oldest part has larger monuments with concrete grave surrounds typical of that period and the second has more standard upright headstones on concrete beams. The third area has uniform reclining memorials on beams.

A special ashes area has been added on the Grahams Road frontage. Waimairi is now only available for burials in pre-purchased plots, second interments and ashes.
