Calcium Cemetery

The cemetery is 35 km from Invercargill and its address is 5 Cemetery Rd, Isla Bank, Southland.


This district, or parts of it, have had other names; Paulin's Bush, Limestone Plains and Calcium. The last two are named after the extensive limestone deposits in the area. Limestone Plains continues as the name of the Parish area for the nearby church and Calcium as the name for the cemetery. Isla Bank first came into use as the name of the postal district. The cemetery is the final resting place for many early settlers and later generations. The first recorded burial took place in 1891. Of the first ten entries in the register, six are children with unnamed babies identified by the father's name only.
