Taupo District cemeteries
We undertake to provide a reliable and responsive interment service within the Taupo District.
Lawn Cemeteries are provided at Rickit Street in Taupo, Aonini Road in Turangi, and Lake Road in Mangakino. These are all operated and maintained by us. Taupo has an historic cemetery and one Maori cemetery located on Lake Terrace.
There are two cemeteries in Mangakino. The main cemetery is on the intersection of Lake and Waipapa Roads. A Maori cemetery, called Urupa, is further along Waipapa Road.
