Our Cemeteries

Council manages five cemeteries at Maketu, Te Puke, Oropi and Katikati.

The Katikati and Te Puke cemetery have a Returned Services section as well as a children's section (13 years and under).

All cemeteries are interdenominational.

Cemetery records are kept at Council service centres in Te Puke, Barkes Corner (in Greerton, Tauranga) and Katikati.

You can make enquiries for genealogical purposes at our service centres, or by emailing customerservice@westernbay.govt.nz
