    1921

    Age 3

    On 1 November 1921, Waikumete was renamed Glen Eden, when the area was formed into a town district. One of the reasons why the name changed was that the name Waikumete had become closely associated with the cemetery. The new name referenced the central Auckland suburb of Mount Eden, as well as the many valleys (glens) in the suburb. After the area was formed into a town district, the area boomed as a working class neighbourhood. Glen Eden is a suburb of West Auckland, New Zealand, located at the foothills of Waitākere Ranges.
