Bio

Nearly 10 years ago as I was researching my family tree I stumbled across Find A Grave. I claimed a photo request and off I went to fulfil it. Having to drive 30 mins, I didn't want to have to come back to the same cemetery later on so I decided to photograph the whole cemetery while I was there.

I emailed the council to see if they had photos on file, and they said they did and were going to be uploading them soon. 10 years later, and that's never happened so after waiting a while I traipsed along to the next cemetery and followed the same process. Went there for the photo request, photographed them all.

I'm not that precious that you need to ask for permission to use my grave photos, so knock yourself out. Add them to your family tree, keep a copy of them, whatever floats your boat.

I also don't subscribe to the four generation rules of managing memorials, if you are a family member or friend then please request a transfer. I am related to roughly 500 memorials that I manage so the odds are in your favour if you don't belong to that group.

Unfortunately the Southland District Council online database has had numerous errors, and it seems they have only just corrected them recently. Some of my online memorials will also have these errors and there are simply too many to retrace so I'm counting on others to send through edits.

Any edits I send through to others have originated from Council Databases, BDM, Paperspast and sometimes an Individuals War Records.
