Our Cemetery records are being amalgamated into one database; work is happening in the background to have all our records available just through the cemeteries search. Once the work is completed the 'cemetery register' will no longer be available. This work is estimated to be completed by the 14th of November 2022.
Search for information on burials in Lower Hutt including churchyards, private burial grounds and Taita Cemetery - old section. To find burials in Taita Cemetery – new section and Wainuiomata Garden of Remembrance, use the cemeteries search.
As World War 1 ended in November 1918, an influenza epidemic swept the world killing millions of victims. You can read about it here. Click the buttom below to see the names of the victims who are buried in Lower Hutt.
Note that this information is as accurate as we can determine. The history lists 26 deaths in Lower Hutt and 42 in Petone. Some victims from Eastbourne and Lower Hutt were buried in Karori Cemetery and are not included in this search. This includes: Francis Henry Wright, John Lynch, and Robert Mitchell McIvor. Those with no known burial location are Lucy Laird and Ernest Henry George Solway.
Accuracy of records
Information on Burials in this database has been compiled from a number of sources by HCC staff and volunteers from the New Zealand Society of Genealogists.
While we have endeavoured to give the best information available, it may not be complete or accurate. Sometimes the details may be inconsistent. For example, a person may be known by a surname, first name, cultural name or nickname other than their official given name. Early records may have only minimal details, and can also be in handwriting difficult to decipher. This means that we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information and as such we accept no liability for any limitation in expected outcome the user may experience as a result.
If the details are not correct or you would like to update our records, please use the link provided on the record concerned (top left corner) to contact us.
