Kaitaia

 Pos S 35°07.485 
E 173°15.371

Kaitaia is located in the very north of New Zealand's North Island, at the base of the Aupouri Peninsula. It has two main cemeteries, this one and the older St. Saviours, established by the missionaries Matthews and Puckey. Both cemeteries include pioneer families, but this newer one includes the war years and is current, with a modern lawn cemetery format for recent graves.
 
It also has a large number of familes descended from the 'Dalmation' immigrants from the Balkans who originally moved to New Zealand as gumdiggers and farmers. They are now a valued and respected sector of the local population. In fact, a welcome sign at the town boundary greets visitors in all three languages, English, Maori and Croation.
