How do I find the Cemetery?

The cemetery is located adjacent to Victoria University of Wellington. There is no drive-in access to the cemetery and parking near the cemetery is scarce. There are bus stops at the university (Stop ID: 5915) and at the corner of Salamanca Rd and the Terrace (Stop ID: 5914). These are serviced by buses 18, 21, 23, 37 and N3. Go to the Metlink site for bus times. It is a short walk from either stop to the cemetery.

How do I find a burial site?

Pleas note that many of the burial records for the cemetery were lost when fire badly damaged the church of St Mary of the Angels in 1918. Much information on burials has been obtained from newspapers of the day through Papers Past, but the only way to locate burial sites is from the remaining monuments and historical maps.

Start by searching the burial list here. There is also more information that has been very kindly undertaken for the Friends on the FamilyTreeCircles website. Please click here to be taken to the research.

If there is a record of the grave site it will be on the interactive map. You may find it easier to search by clicking the View Larger Map icon at the top right (icon looks like [ ] ) and going to the map viewer. This allows more viewing and searching options.

You may also want to scan historical maps for the burial location. There are four maps from dating from c. 1865 to 1984.
