The Catholic Cemetery has high historical significance to Tauranga as the resting place of a number of notable people, an historic archive for genealogical and historic research and a touchstone for descendants of Tauranga families. The cemetery is located at 45 Eighteenth Avenue, Tauranga South (corner of Fraser Street and Eighteenth Avenue). The first burial in the Tauranga Catholic Cemetery was Margaret Mannix (née Glenn) (1856-1881) who died on 28 April 1881 at the age of 25. Source: Tauranga Catholic Cemetery by Debbie McCauley
