Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Wairarapa, New Zealand with my husband & 2x children. I have enjoyed helping people find lost & missing family members over the past few years. Feel free to leave me a message if you have extra information for someone.

I am tying to add all local entries, but I also enter the deaths from the local paper, so I can connect them with any family at these cemeteries. (I do not keep copies of the obituary). For those entries which I have just the year of death date I have estimated the persons birth date, if you know the correct DOB date let me know and I will insure the correct information is entered. I am not related to 99.9% of my entries.

Many people like being able to see family members headstones as they don't live near but others may not, If you want a family member removed feel free to let me know. I am happy to do this.
I don't need to be abused for this to happen.

If I have made an error I'm also happy to change this.

Cemeteries I have done and are complete are

Akura Urupa Masterton
Ahipanepane Urupa Te Ore Ore, Masterton
Hamuera Urupa Gladstone
Oates Family Cemetery Carterton
Te Uru o Tane Urupa Masterton
Masterton War Memorial
Mauriceville North, Wairarapa
Mauriceville West, Wairarapa
Taupo Old Maori Cemetery

Some other Wairarapa Cemeteries are:

Riverside Cemetery Masterton
Greytown Cemetery
Rangiurunga, Greytown
Waipopo Urupa, Gladstone
Amahua Urupa, Gladstone

headstone photos
Thanx for reply. I have several listings at Greytown on Find A Grave.
If you could do them when you have a chance, I would be over the moon.
I require them for my family tree. If there is no headstone on any of them would you please photograph plot and enter on Find A Grave. xxxx

Their records (usually with photos) are available online at
Since this website says I can only post phots I have taken myself, I won't attach from the CHB DC website but you might be able to find them for yourself.

Western Hills photo request
I am going to the cemetery again this week, so will ring the Council to find out where to look for your grave and send you the photos next weekend, I hope. I go often as my Dad's grave is there.

Thank you so much for adding the Dunn family burials and headstone photos. You are doing a really wonderful job helping people find their lost family members. Keep up the good work Jojo. Best regards...

Wrong photo

For some odd reason your photo of the gravemarker for Allan & Edith Eades ended up on Emma Martell's memorial. Find A Grave #112195547.

Please remove your photo from this memorial.

RE: Edits
Hi Jo,
Yes, I am trying to fix as many memorials with all capital letters as I can find. It is one of the Find A Grave Memorial Naming Conventions in the FAQs "Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field." Plus, it makes them much easier to read.

I know... I have way too much time on my hands! :-)

I think I only finished up through M, so if you would like, I will try to get through the rest as I have time. Then all you would need to do is accept them.

And thank you for all the work that you do!
