Re the burial place of Mary Lauretta Kenyon (1872-1958), widow of David.

I have sighted these details at NZ Cemeteries Records 1800-2007 (NZ Society of Genealogists) per Ancestry, on what looks like a page of listings for the the Gorge Cemetery in Woodville. I can forward a copy of the relevant page to you if you don't mind sending me your email address so I can attach it. Mine is

As per NZ Cemeteries records, the death of Mary Lauretta Kenyon nee Harding (1872-1958) is recorded at Block 4, Row 9, Gorge Cemetery, Woodville, on the same headstone as her husband.

Hi there.
Just wanted to let you know I am deleting my memorial to James as your's came first. Somehow there managed to be a double up. Possible two cemetery listings with slight different names got merged as one.

Hi pkg
Is there already a Wharerangi Cemetery, Napier yet. Don't want to start this cemetery if we have it already under a different name. Thanks

Added by Daisy✿ on Nov 25, 2016 11:16 PM


The memorial# 44068561 (Ruth) has been placed in the Waihenga Cemetery, Dublin Street, Martinborough. It should be located in the Martinborough Cemetery, Huangarua/Puruatanga Road.

The naming and addresses given for the two cemeteries in Martinborough has caused some confusion and I will ask Find A Grave amend the cemetery details to get better clarity.

The Wesleyan Cemetery, Bridge St, Lower Hutt
Hi There

I recently went and potographed all the existing graves including the monument at The Wesleyan Cemetery (shown on sign at the cemetery) in Bridge St, Lower Hutt, Wellington. This is the name it's commonly known by so am wondering if you'd be able to please change this or know how to do it.

Kind Regards

Whananaki South
Hi there. I was interested to see a couple of internments in the Whananaki South Cemetery in Find a Grave.
I live nearby, and have visited this cemetery.
Sadly it is not looking good. I have taken a number of photo's.
I intend to go back when the weather warms up.
If there is anything I could do in the way of photo's etc, just ask.

I sent this message to S Melton today.

"Duplicate memorial
Hi. I was looking the RSA Woodville cemetery site recently and noticed that there is a duplicate memorial for Albert William Corpe. Your memorial has a number of links as well as a photograph, although the one established by 'pkg' (#46968786) is older. Perhaps you can come to an arrangement as who does what to which!! :-) Rgds Jonty"

The Avenue cemetery page
Pat, Also, are you by chance the owner of the page for The Avenue cemetery (2333034)? Or do you know who is? The "a" tag for the Horowhenua database needs to be corrected to the current value (HDC changed their URL slightly)

RE: linking Wigzells
Hi, yes, but anyone can use the EDIT tab on ANY memorial. If someone else maintains the memorial the EDIT tab queues the edit to that person for approval. It then shows up on the EDITS tab of your profile page for your approval or rejection. Check the EDITS tab on your profile page to see if you have any edits to approve. Do you get any edits sent to you? I will send one just to demonstrate...

RE: linking Wigzells
Hi, I've done these links - but surely you know you can do them yourself by using the LINK tab on the memorial... it is quick and easy, and I approve edits almost every day, sometimes several times during the day.
