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 trying 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

Hi there i was just randomly typing in some names of people that my parents knew back in the day, and one of which was a lady named Jimmy Tarrant. She used to live down cornwall place, masterton. She had a Jack potangaroa living with her back then. Such nice people thinking back on it. was wandering if you knew jimmy at all?

Kind Regards,

Daniel Peck

Misplaced photograph?
I was looking for the grave of William Oxley Flutey and found his name at Find A Grave Memorial# 120610039
Trouble is that when I took a look at the headstone you have posted at that memorial it is of an 11 year old Chinese boy of 11 years of age named Russell Wong with no mention of William Oxley Flutey on the stone.
I am thinking that you inadvertently got muddled when adding photos.
Could you please investigate and see for yourself

Her headstone photo is on the link you sent me. Napier City Council are okay with you using their photo. They are not enforcing copyright.
