Cemetery notes and/or description:
TIRAU was originally name Oxford.

It was planned as a large-scale city for the Waikato, however plans were changed after the entrepreneurial Rose family bought up large volumes of land in the region with the intention of making large returns when it came of high demand.
Oxford later became a rural service town and changed its name to Tirau in 1896.
By the late 1980s Tirau was fast becoming a ghost town.

The town is now a well known tourist stop-off and is characterised by many local art works in the town forged out of discarded corrugated iron.
