Comprising of 6.57 hectares of land, Paeroa Cemetery is situated amongst gently sloping farmland along State Highway 2, 2kms east of Paeroa, on the main road to Waihi.
Established prior to 1885 when the land was owned by the Thames County Council, as the public cemetery for the surrounding rural area including Paeroa. Ownership was subsequently transferred to the Ohinemuri County Council, and then to Hauraki District Council following local government amalgamation in 1989. The Council has delegated administration to the Paeroa Ward Committee.
Within the cemetery are sections for Lawn Burials, Ashes Burials, and Returned Services Association (RSA) Burials.
The cemetery is open to the public every day during the hours of daylight.
There are currently plots available.
