cemetery at Paihia, Bay of Islands

Am trying to find out the name of the cemetery at the St. Pauls Anglican Church in Paihi. Am planning to visit this area soon. The cemetery is on the main street and the church is also on the property. Can'f find the name of the cemetery anywhere, but there are graves in the front and also in the back yard area

hi thanks for answering, I checked findagrave.com and it does not seem to be listed. That is strange as there are many graves there. How can it not have a name? People are still buried there Are you local? Could you call the church and ask? It is important for me to find out the name exactly. I thank you for any help you can give me

I'm guessing it isn't a 'cemetary', but is the graveyard for the church. Therefore it won't have a name - it is part of the church grounds.

And by asking any of us to phone the church - you do realise it is a long distance call for Bean or me?

Surely if it is so important to you, you can made the call and you can pay the charges? - or why not write to the church?

best of luck :)

Wasnt suggesting anyone pay long distance charges. For info, I was under the impression I was getting responses from a local...so sorry! Will handle it myself. Thanks for your time

One cant miss the church and its grounds, it is right on the waterfront in Paihia. The Church still holds regular services there. I have been past it many times. If you want to have a look around no problem just pop in but knowing where you are be respectful and you will be fine.

You could check with the bay of islands District Council who may also have the records of the church cemetry.

The vicar for the parish is in Kerikeri.
