TOKOROA cemetery SOUTH WAIKATO
Dumfries Road
Tokoroa
South Waikato District
Waikato  New Zealand

Cemetery notes and/or description:
It is traditionally recorded that one of the great fighting chiefs of the
Ngati Kahupungapunga, Tokoroa by name, was slain by Ngāti Raukawa during the siege of Pohuturoa, a high rocky eminence 27km south of Tokoroa on the main Taupo highway.
It is probable that some early surveyor applied the name Tokoroa as a tribute to the old chief's memory.
The name TOKOROA first appeared on the early maps of the 1860s.
