Karori Cemetery

While it is not our intention to even try to transcribe all the headstones at this cemetery, as it has been done and is available, these are a few we have noted while rambling around the early settler section which may be of use to someone. The New Zealand Society of Genealogists have recorded headstone transcriptions and have made these available on microfiche. Sets of these are held at most major resource libraries in NZ and Australia. In addition the National Library in Wellington has the transcriptions on computer. They are not yet on-line. Should you wish to contact the Sexton directly the phone number is New Zealand 04 4766109.

This section will be updated as weather and energy permits.
