GMW Gear Meat Works A Maori urupa where some early European settlers were buried (separate from Te Puni and Owhiti urupa). The Gear Meat Works was later built on that site, and while the burial ground was identified and protected (fenced off) for many years, it was eventually obscured by later building construction (possibly between 1977 and 1988). Photos (1941 and 2013) are marked with the location of the urupa. Photo

Plot Location


Due to the requirements of the Cemeteries database, each burial plot has needed a Plot Location Code allocated to it. Please note that there are no markers on the site using these plot location codes. Where there was an existing plot numbering system this has been used in the new code. For details of the plot location code structure, see the Help file.
