Yaldhurst Cemetery

** In Progress **

Yaldhurst Cemetery, opened in 1887, is one of the oldest cemeteries in Christchurch. It is located on Buchanan’s Road west of the city on the edge of the small township of Yaldhurst.


High-resolution photographs of the grave are available, plus one or two of the cemetery/church if applicable. This includes a full transcription, particularly for those stones that are hard to read or eroded.

Please consider a small donation to keep the site and the work going
