Notes: Bromley Cemetery was opened in 1918 because there was a need for burial places for the great number of victims of the influenza epidemic who perished in the last months of that year. There are many Returned and Services Association (RSA) graves, predominantly Great War veterans.
Also found here is a memorial for stillborn children and one of the few mausoleums in Christchurch.
Bromley Cemetery is now full except for ash and second interments in family plots. The majority of memorials here tend to be lower and more conservative than most older cemeteries, providing a more orderly appearance which is accentuated by the uniformity of the Returned Services section.
