Cemetery notes and/or description:
5.32 hectares situated in the rural area 5kms east of Waihi township on State Route 2 amongst farmland and orchards. Established prior to 1898 as the public cemetery for Waihi and the surrounding rural area, and the small coastal township of Waihi Beach. The Waihi Cemetery administration was vested in the Waihi Borough Council in 1902. Between 1902 and 1913 the records for the cemetery were destroyed by fire. Following local government amalgamation in 1989, ownership changed to Hauraki District Council who delegated administration to the Waihi Ward Committee. Within the cemetery are sections for Ashes Burials, Burials, and Returned Services Association (RSA) Burials.

As a project for the Waihi Lionís Club 50th Jubilee a Memorial Wall has been constructed by the Lions at the Waihi Cemetery. Members of the public that live in the Waihi area that may have family members buried elsewhere or ashes scattered, and who wish to have something locally to remember them by, may fill in an application form to purchase a plaque from the Hauraki District Council.
