Online Cemetery Search
Council is making some system changes which means this service is currently unavailable. We expect to have it back up and running by 31 May 2023.
Please contact Council’s Customer Centre if you need information prior to then. Email email@example.com or call 07 348 4199. Thank you for your patience.
Rotorua Lakes Council holds more than 32,000 separate records for public cemeteries and the city crematorium dating back as far as 1882.
It is possible to search by name using our Cemetery Search Tool below for an individual cemetery or crematorium record. A search can reveal information such as the full name of the deceased, age, location of burial, other associated information held and in many cases a map and photograph of a headstone.
Because of the nature of historical documents of this type the accuracy of information provided as part of this service cannot be guaranteed. There may be errors or omissions in the data presented, and Rotorua Lakes Council does not accept responsibility for any effects arising from this information.
