Hastings District Council has its cemetery records online in a searchable database, available to the public. The database contains more than 57,000 records from the four Hastings cemeteries (Hastings, Havelock North, Mangaroa and Puketapu) and cremations.

Use the database to find detailed information including full name, date of death, occupation, undertaker and purchaser of the headstone. The database provides maps of the location of the grave/urn in the cemetery.

Disclaimer: Hastings District Council makes every endeavour to ensure the information in the cemetery database is correct but accuracy and completeness are not guaranteed. Our aim is to have correct information on the database. If there is any information that you think is incorrect please send us the correct information with supporting verification:

Note: Other sources of genealogy information include funeral directors' records, newspaper death notices, electoral rolls and transcriptions compiled by the NZ Society of Genealogists.

HDC has recently launched EverAfter, a new public access cemetery database/website. This website makes searching people and plot locations a lot easier. The system provides satellite maps of our cemeteries that accurately show the location of plots. In conjunction with Google maps, when used on a smart device you are able to access grave co-ordinates and be “walked” directly to the plot location, and you can download or share directions. As part of the implementation we are updating photographs within the system to aid identification of plots. This will be an ongoing process.

Application forms

Application forms for the cemeteries and crematorium can be accessed from the 'related documents' section at the top of the page.
