Waikumete Cemetery is under the governing jurisdiction of the Waitakere City Council. It is the responsibility of the Chevra to manage the Jewish sections of the cemetery in conjunction with the Council. The Chevra is responsible for all activities which occur in the Hebrew areas of Waikumete Cemetery. There are two sections: Section A, the old area and Section B, the newer area (28 November 1976 onwards).
In addition to ensuring all burials and consecrations are carried out in accordance with Halacha (Jewish law) we are also responsible for maintaining the cemetery to the high standard required by our community. This entails periodic working parties as well as managing external resources and liaising with the Waitakere City Council.
The Waikumete Cemetery is located at:
4128 Great North Road

Buying, Selling or Releasing Plots
In the past, the Chevra has reserved plots for our members without requesting payment although due to inflation, those members who have chosen to prepay their sections have enjoyed lower prices than those who have elected not to do so. In 2010, Waikumete proposed that plots which are reserved must be paid for and as such we can no longer guarantee that unpaid plots will remain available for you.
