Cemetery notes and/or description:
Feilding is a town in the Manawatu-Wanganui region of the North Island of New Zealand.
It is located 20km north of Palmerston North.

The town is a service town for the surrounding farming district. The Manawatu Plains, on which the town is sited, are very fertile land, and as such it is a prosperous agricultural area.
Being located on the floodplain of a major river has its problems, however, and in February 2004 the town suffered extensive flooding, with approximately 150 homes rendered uninhabitable.

Feilding has won the annual New Zealand's Most Beautiful Town award 14 times. One feature of the town is that there are no traffic lights and no parking meters.

The town was named after Colonel William Henry Adelbert Feilding, a director of the Emigrants and Colonists Aid Corporation Ltd. who negotiated the purchase of a 100,000 acre (400 kmē) block of land from the Wellington provincial government in 1871.
The first settlers arrived from Great Britain on the 22nd January 1874.
