Rest in Peace at Pauatahanui
Finding a loved one at Pauatahanui Burial Ground just got easier, with the introduction of new signage and markers. Visitors can now familiarise themselves with the layout and the location of the plots from the information on the new sign at the entrance. Letters have been carved into black granite plaques installed on each row to coincide with the entrance sign. There are also ve coloured granite poppies located alongside the plaques of ve soldiers who lost their lives in Europe during the First World War. Still to come are interpretive plaques on four graves which will start to tell the stories of those buried there, and thus some of Pauatahanui’s story. The project was driven by volunteer burial ground managers Rosemary Patterson, Sharon Evans, Peter Rutledge and Andrew Henderson and the granite plaques were donated by Lyndi and Ganesh Cherian of Glover Memorials.
Newly installed signage and row markers make locating a loved one much easier.
