Nestled under Whangarei’s Western Hills, bordered by a trickling stream, the leafy park at the end of Selwyn Avenue showed almost no sign of its origins until the early 21st century.

At the little cemetery, in use from around 1852 to 1940, lie many of Whangarei’s earliest European residents. Originally known as Waiarohia or Rust Lane, the cemetery was later officially named Mission Ground. All through the seventy years since closure, descendants yearned for the names of their forebears to be inscribed on a memorial.
