POHANGINA cemetery MANAWATU
Kuku Rd, Pohangina - 13km N of Ashhurst
Ashhurst
Palmerston North City
Manawatu-Wanganui  New Zealand

Cemetery notes and/or description:
POHANGINA has been translated into English as "The warming of the ovens at night", but an earlier English spelling, "Pouhangina", suggests "A newly cut post, still bleeding sap".

Pohangina cemetery is now a closed cemetery
It has 196 available plots and the first burial took place in June 1913.

European settlers began arriving in the district from 1886, when an association of small farmers established the Awahou Pohangina Special Settlement

Charles Wildbore and his family were among the families who arrived in the Pohangina Valley in the 1890s.
Charles was a skilled photographer who recorded the life of the community and the changes in the landscape.
A collection of his photographs is displayed at "County Fayre", the former Pohangina County Council offices in the Pohangina township.
