Katikati in the Bay of Plenty was founded by George Vesey Stewart who wished to establish an 'Ulster Plantation' in New Zealand.

The first burial in Katikati Cemetery was the Reverend John Crossley who died on 5 November 1878.

In 2010 the cemetery underwent a major restoration which included the installation of white crosses for previously unmarked graves and the repair of many historic headstones. The Legion of Frontiersmen J Troop, led by Captain Val Baker, won the 2010 TrustPower Western Bay of Plenty Community Awards for the restoration of the Katikati Cemetery. Val and others were interviewed by a crew from TVNZ 6 for the program 'Volunteer Power'. The program can be viewed at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJofy_qRusY
