Cemetery Area: 0.1366 ha
Location: Kaiwera Road
Cemetery Area: 8.09 ha
Location: Bowmar Road, Charlton, Gore
Established: 1974 - present
Charlton Park cemetery was commissioned by the Gore Borough Council in 1974. It was developed as the old Gore Cemetery in Crewe Street was reaching the end of its useful life.
Charlton Park now receives the most burials in the Gore district.
Charlton Park has a total area of 8.1 hectares, of which about half is now fully utilised. The current plotted area, including the cremation garden has a life expectancy of approximately 20 to 30 years. This leaves the remaining area, which is currently leased for stock grazing, to be developed into plots.
Cemetery Area: 3.51 ha
Location: Crewe Street, Gore
Established: 1878 - family internments only
The Gore cemetery is not available for interments, except if a plot has been pre-purchased. The number of burials at the Gore cemetery average around 20 per year. Unfortunately it is not possible to estimate the future usage of the cemetery due to the fact that plots were sold to families and not individually. This means that any family member is, at any time in the future, entitled to be interned in the cemetery as long as space remains in that family plot.
Cemetery Area: 4.0 ha
Location: Crawford Road, Mataura
The Mataura cemetery is the Gore district's number two cemetery in terms of usage, the average yearly interment during the past three years being around 20. The Mataura cemetery covers 4 hectares of which approximately half is currently leased for grazing.
Cemetery Area: 3.22 ha
Location: East Street, Pukerau
Pukerau cemetery has had less than 5 burials in the last five years. A Pukerau resident currently runs stock on the unused Council cemetery land. This arrangement means minimal maintenance costs are incurred by Council and also leaves 3.2 hectares available for future development, should in the longer term another cemetery close to Gore be required
Cemetery Area: 1.214 ha
Location: Matheson Road, Waikaka
Currently administered by a Trust - the only Council connection with this cemetery is the ownership of the land. A Waikaka Trust administers burials and maintains the grounds. The cemetery itself is 1.2 hectares in total.
