Bio Photo Hello Fellow Find-A-Gravers and ancestry hunters!
I found Find a grave via doing my family tree on

I'm from Nelson, New Zealand so if you have a family member buried here or need help with something I can try to help you.

Findagrave site itself is not meant to be offensive it is meant to be there to honour and remember loved ones, please don't think we are out to make anyone unhappy this is just not the case, if you wish to have a memorial removed please contact me in private to discuss.

I am flexible about transfers, and trust that you will take good care of them. To request a transfer, go to the memorial that you want, click the edit tab, and send your request as a suggestion/additional information. Following the FAG procedure will ensure a smooth, accurate transfer. Please also use this tab for requests for corrections and links.

RE: Andrews family
Hi - not sure what the rule is. I would be inclined to keep them and add a link to the memorials where they are actually buried perhaps with a note on each saying that it is simply a memorial and that the burial is at xxxx cemetery under memorial number xxxxxxx. Jonty :-)

Andrews family update
My apologies. Only Michael John and Thomas are at Wakapuaka. Margaret (wife of Michael John) - #143734271 is also at Linwood. Again Southern man has already established a memorial there. Rgds Jonty

Andrews family
Hi - I've sent you an edit letting you know that William Douglass Andrews (#143738848) is buried in Burwood and that he is only memorialised at Wakapuaka. You have a memorial at both cemeteries. Additionally, Anna Douglass Andrews (#143736599) died before the Andrews family came to NZ, so hers is simply a memorial also.

Several of the other Andrews family members are also memorialised at Wakapuaka but are buried at Linwood. Southern man has established memorials at Linwood for them and I have sent him edits to link them to parents - Michael and Margaret - who (along with Thomas) are the only ones at Wakapuaka.

Family members (children) memorialised at Wakapuaka but buried at Linwood are:
Charles George - #143734296
Mary Elizabeth - #143734422
Edith - #143734376
Margaret Dorcas - #143734377
Michael - #143734295

Regards - Jonty :-)

Just a note to thank you for making the changes I requested.

The memorials are all for descendants of Emma Heywood nee Ivall who emigrated to NZ in 1856. An article about her life is at

Hi, I am administrator of the non-commercial genealogical website I would be most grateful if I could have permission to use your excellent photos of the Francis Scotson headstone 140153042 and the general Marsden Cemetery sign.

Thanks for all your invaluable photographs to assist us genealogists.

Estcourt family
Hi - Got your edit suggestions which i have incorporated by establishing more memorials and linking family members. You mentioned an Elizabeth Dingley (Lies) Estcourt - at the moment I can only find an Elizabeth Dinely Estcourt who married a John George Denne in 1860, presumably after the death of her husband George James, although I can't find a record of his death in the registers. I did see a family tree that has him dying on 28/10/1856 in Nelson - which would fit with the later marriage of Elizabeth. However, the death registered on NZ BDM index for that date is for an Edwin Estcourt (age 25). Bit of a mystery there :-)

RE: Frances Jane Humphreys (2)
No worries. Do you want me to resend the edits?
You can then just delete the bio you have against Frances Jane Humphreys that should appear against Frances Jane (Humphreys) Thorn out at Richmond.

I've uploaded some photos as per your photo requests

RE: Frances Jane Humphreys (2)
Hi - sorry me again :-) I pushed the send button a tad early. I meant to add that the marriage of Charles Churchill Anning to Frances Jane Glanville (no 'd') is registered in Pontypool (Wales) in 1857 under reference 11A 206A.

There is a marriage of Frances Jane Anning to John Humphreys registered in NZ in 1887, three years after Mary Jane (Campbell) Humphreys died.... Jonty
