Cemetery search and maps

The Oamaru Branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists has been instrumental in the research and maintenance of the Cemeteries Search website of the Waitaki District Council. The Branch has compiled a CD of Headstone Transcriptions for the old and new Oamaru cemeteries. These are available at a cost of $25.00, including packing and postage within New Zealand. Please email oamaru@genealogy.org.nz to order a copy.

You can use the cemetery search to locate burials and memorials in the Oamaru cemeteries - Old and Lawn cemetery and the Duntroon, Georgetown, Hampden, Herbert (Otepopo), Kurow, Livingstone, Macraes, Maheno, Ngapara and Papakaio cemeteries. Palmerston cemetery burials are currently being added to the cemetery search. Omarama cemetery will be added to the database at a later date.

A map for each cemetery showing the block and plot numbers can be downloaded below. If you have further enquiries please contact the Waitaki District Archive, email: archive@waitaki.govt.nz, telephone: 03 433 0852.
