Total records = 37.
Turn left off State Highway 1 at Towai, aprox 30km north from Whangarei
on road signposted "Maromaku" (Maromaku Rd). Aprox 2 km down this road
on right hand side.
I have transcribed all marked graves from tombstones when I walked
the cemetery in Jan 2002. There are a few unmarked graves around.
In the year 2000 the North Auckland district had a project, and the
cemetery was cleaned up. It was previously very overgrown and had
been closed since 1953. The cemetery has been rededicated and reopened
from 2000. New gates were erected, gifted by the local Agricultural
