|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Located on Shelbourne at Nile Street, in Nelson, New Zealand. Hallowell Cemetery is one of the oldest burial grounds (1844-1885). The cemetery was a Maori burial ground before the arrival of the Europeans. It is also known as The Old Burying Ground and Shelbourne Street Cemetery. There are only two gravestones in evidence now but a display board gives some of the names of people buried there.
