Cemeteries

We operate 10 cemeteries within the district, most of which are located near small rural settlements.

Larger cemeteries at Hautapu and Leamington service the Cambridge area and the Picquet Hill Cemetery services Te Awamutu.  Waipa cemeteries provide for around 200 burials each year, with 90 percent of these being at the three larger cemeteries.

Waipa District Council have opened a Natural Burial section at the Leamington Cemetery, which is to be purely used for natural burials using biodegradable materials. The Natural Burial area will be planted in native trees in lieu of headstones and location of plots will be recorded on Council database using a recording device such as GPS.
