Pahi is in Otamatea County, Northland, about 7km south of Paparoa. The Albertland Settlers landed here in 1863.

In the early 1860's William Rawson Brame had a vision to establish a classless, nonconformist society in New Zealand.
On May 29th 1862 the migrant ships "Matilda Wattenbach" and "Hanover" departed from the London Docks bound for the Albertland Settlement in New Zealand with the first of over 3000 settlers.

The current "Cemetery" is on Steven's farm about 1 mile from Pahi township on the Pahi Road, right hand side driving to Paparoa, 3-4 chains from the road, and not visible. It was moved here from in town when they needed the land for the road.When the Stevens bought the farm, the cemetery had been very run down, it was not fenced off, and many were broken. Mrs Stevens said most of the headstones were then taken by family members. All that remains now is a few pieces of marble.
It was officially closed in 1968.
The earliest headstone was 1895, the most recent 1906.

In the 70s only 5 graves here had headstones.
