Rest in Peace at Pau­ata­hanui

Kapi-Mana News - - CITY FOCUS -

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.
