It was a pleasure to welcome back Barbara Mulligan to again speak to us on 9 March.  A passionate conservationist, Barbara has earned great kudos for her untiring work conserving graves in the Karori Cemetery. This is the second largest cemetery in New Zealand after Waikemete in Auckland, and largest by number of interments.
Of special relevance are the graves of those who perished in the 1918 Flu Pandemic. With a team of friends and volunteers Barbara did a wonderful job cleaning up hundreds of graves in time for the centennial commemoration of the Flu pandemic in late 2018.

Barbara does a great job running guided tours of the cemetery. The trust reaches out to the wider community to help preserve its many heritage features. The friends of the cemetery have formed a trust to preserve, protect and enhance all aspects of the cemetery.
