Cemeteries

Operational Cemeteries

Council administers six cemeteries in the Kaipara area. They are old Mt Wesley, new Mt Wesley, Dargaville (Mt Wesley) RSA, Redhill, Arapohue and Tokatoka.

All other cemeteries are administered by Trustees who are people that live within the area where the cemetery is. They are open to the public seven days a week, 52 weeks a year.

Our cemeteries are maintained to a high standard and we ask for your help to maintain these standards by observing the following requests:

  • please, no work is to be undertaken in any cemeteries (Including the erection of headstones) without the Cemetery Managers permission
  • please, no glass - including vases, jars, beer bottles and glass flowers/ornaments. Glass is easily broken causing a health and safety hazard to visitors and staff.
  • please, no foodstuffs - food encourages rats, rabbits and other vermin .
  • please, no planting without written permission from the Cemetery Manager.
  • please, dogs must be under control, and tidied up after. 
  • please, no vehicles - between dusk and dawn.

Historic Cemeteries

All of the cemeteries Council administers have Historical Significance as they have been going for over a 100 years. None of those cemeteries are currently ‘closed’.
