Description

In 1879, an agreement was signed with a Mr Griffiths for three acres adjoining the Church of England (Anglican) cemetery. The land was laid off in four blocks, one of these being reserved for Catholics. The first burial took place in 1879. In 1916, the Hororata Cemetery Board requested that the Selwyn County Council take control of the cemetery. http://rates.selwyn.govt.nz/cemeteries/plot_records/search
