The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints cemetery has high historical significance in Tauranga as the resting place for a number of the church's early members. The cemetery is the smallest of the old Tauranga cemeteries and contains a range of grave memorials crafted between 1907 and 2002. These include slab and desk, short upright granite slabs, tablet stones, a single gothic shouldered marble slab and a more recent bronze book mounted on a large stone. The cemetery is located at 173 Fraser Street (corner of Fraser Street and Seventeenth Avenue), in Tauranga South. The first burial took place in 1907. William David Hall died at Waikato Hospital aged 21 on April 7, 1907, and is buried in plot 1. Source: Tauranga Latter Day Saints Cemetery by Debbie McCauley
