The Yaldhurst Cemetery which opened in 1887 is one of the oldest cemeteries in Christchurch.
The cemetery is in a rural setting on the western side of Christchurch adjacent to Rimu Park Scout Camp surrounded by mature (predominantly oak) trees. Part of the cemetery is fenced off and is grazed by a local farmer. The cemetery has an older area with upright memorials and also a newer area with memorial style headstones which is expanding rapidly.
There are no toilet facilities at the cemetery however there are toilets at the adjacent Rimu Park Scout Camp which are available for public use.
Casket and ash burial plots are available in Yaldhurst Cemetery.
