Overview

Addington Cemetery is situated in the old, working-class suburb of Addington, not far from the city centre. Dating back to 1858, this was Christchurch's first public cemetery. A map indicates where prominent people are buried, such as suffragette, Kate Sheppard. New Zealand was the first country in the world to grant woman's suffrage, in 1893, following the efforts of Kate Sheppard and others. Addington Cemetery is a fitting resting place for this crusader; her grave surrounded by numerous trees and flowers.
