Huirangi Cem., nr Waitara, TNK, NZ
This is a wonderful little cemetery in Taranaki.
The view is wasted on the inhabitants. It consists of an extensive panorama from the sea round to Mt Taranaki (or Mt Egmont, depending on your upbringing).
My connection with it is that most of my maternal direct ancestors are buried there: grandparents (Ern and Honor Andrews), great grandparents (Gib and Ellen Andrews, Matthias and Caroline Emma Rowe) and great grandparents (Simon and Jane Andrews, James and Jane Turnbull, William and Honor Rowe), nearly the full set.
