This Private Cemetery is on the land which was settled and first owned by Donald "Cooper” or “Bane” Cameron.
It is situated above the Makirikiri Stream near State Highway 3 to Wanganui, just before Turakina.
There are thought to be 26 burials dating from 1851 in here and there are 7 Headstones dating from 1876.

"It has been truly said that the early settlers require no memorial for "if we look around we see their monuments." Unfortunately, however, the later day colonist does not "look around," he is too much occupied in the rush of life or sport to think of those who braved all and left those dear to them to come and found our Dominion. They were our true Empire builders."
Taken from the book Early Rangitikei by JAMES G. WILSON
