Famous Christchurch People resting here

Addington Cemetery is a very historical place where some very famous New Zealander’s are buried. Including the famous suffragette Kate Sheppard who led women to gain the vote for women in the late 19th Century. This made New Zealand the first country to give women the vote in elections. Other famous people are there and also it is a fascinating place to stroll and read the epitaphs. I have as a teacher taken classes there and many of my students have become historically inspired. The cemetery is in the historical Addington Suburb not far from the beautiful Hagley Park.

Peaceful place

We spent approximately half an hour on this cemetery- it is clean, has very old graves (most of them more then 100yrs. old), nice flowers every here and there and birdsounds everywhere...a very peaceful spot to spend some quiet time at.

Amazing history

A review of a cemetery seems a little off wack but this particular cemetery is the final resting place of Kate Shepherd whom fought for women’s rights to vote. This movement made waves world wide and sparked a revolution of change and woman’s rights. Good on her job well done.

So much potential!

This place is really local to me and we often walk our dog through, unfortunately though after the earthquakes this place has got no love and it is quite banged up!

A really historical cemetery Kate Sheppard is buried here! And when looking at all the gravestones we believe it is over 100 years old!

However it isn’t really safe to visit here with little children and some folks who hang out here are a little intimidating so until someone helps this place out it is a very average part of the city! Such a shame because it really could be a beautiful historical spot in our city.
