In the Tapu Cemetery, rest many of the early pioneers of the district, and on the headstones read the names of those whose descendants still live in the area. Many graves are unmarked. Apparently this place was always a Maori burial ground, and in the early days it was agreed between the local Maori and Europeans, that any residents could be buried in this sacred ground [this may indicate why the area is known as ‘Tapu’] generally in family plots. However, the area has never been gazetted as an official cemetery as the Thames County has no records whatsoever and over the years persons were buried more or less indiscriminately, may graves now being unmarked. Eventually, the area known as the Cemetery Point, was sold by the local Maori and was taken over by the Thames-Coromandel council. In 1972 a fence was erected according to the line that had been surveyed prior to the sale of the main block of land, and unfortunately it was later discovered that some unmarked graves are outside this boundary.
