Search Old Thames Cemetery:

There was an early goldminer's cemetery at Thames, before Shortland Cemetery was officially established. Over the years the number of headstones remaining has decreased, and those that do remain have been moved from their original location. Details are available on NZSG Fiche D01.09 and there is an article on the cemetery at: http://www.thetreasury.org.nz/GoldminersCemetery/Cemetery.htm
Many who were buried at this old Kauaeranga Pa Urupa site, were reinterred at Shortland Cemetery.
The old cemetery is located on private ground and can not be accessed; located to the north of the old United Football Clubrooms.
