Cemetery notes and/or description:
SHANNON is a small town in the Horowhenua District of New Zealand's North Island

The town is considered to have been founded on 8th March 1887 when the first auction of town land was held.
It originally adjoined extensive swamps and was a headquarters for flax milling. The land on which the township later stood was part of an endowment of 215,000 acres (870 km2) acquired about 1881 by the Wellington and Manawatu Railway Company

Shannon was named after a director of the railway company. It was constituted a borough in 1917
