Whareora is one of those forgotten places in the world, close by Whangarei yet lost in the eastern hills. Many of the settlers came in from the coast or across from Parua Bay and the area largely pre-dates the city itself.

To find the cemetery start in Whangarei and take Mill Road north and then turn down Whareora Road to the right. Continue out around the seductive curves until you arrive at a small industrial complex. At that point you've already passed the turnoff (in Irish terms, ye don't want ter be goin' that away') which was Parahaki Parish Road. That takes you down alongside the complex and almost directly to the cemetery gates.

We have now gone to a live on-line database called MOP ('Myra's Other Place') and the older records are steadily being copied over. The MOP database has a lot more than just cemetery records and is worth checking out here where you can log in as Guest password guest.

To find a person enter the surname in the target box and presss ENTER. This will list every case of that surname across all cemeteries. To list all persons in a particular cemetery enter the name of the cemetery and change the pull-down option immediately to the left from LAST NAME to CEMETERY then ENTER.
