  Auckland Our History Public Places Conservation

This group was established in 1995, with the aim of promoting the unique historical and horticultural features of the old cemetery.

Waikumete Cemetery and Crematorium covers an area of 108 hectares and since 1908 has served as the main cemetery for the Auckland Region. It is the largest cemetery in New Zealand and one of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.

Waikumete cemetery is an important part of Auckland and New Zealands heritage, and the preservation and restoration of historic graves, preserving flora and educating the public are just some of what our organization sets out to do.

Use of funds

Funds raised will be used to restore graves, combat grafiti and vandalism, fund research & education and public outreach to let the public know about the historical significance of Waikumete.

    F.O.W. is doing great work to enhance this historic place. We need help to restore some of the beautiful headstones before they are for ever lost.
