Purewa cemetery is one of several large cemeteries in the greater Auckland area. It is quite near the volcanic cone of Mt Wellington and one of the older ones. It was also the first crematorium in the region and occasionally confusion arises during research because Purewa provided cremation services for other cemeteries where the ashes may be finally located.
