Hi Spades

It was the Tainui,I PMed the transcript to g forgeron but the feeling was that Alex had travelled on his own and his parents had never left Scotland,I wondered if it was a brother and his wife.

Cheers Janette

Death
NZBDM
1991/46454   Donald, Alexander Howie  b. 22 December 1902

Buried at Alexandra Cemetery



Hello...

The burial record for the Alexandra cemetery ashes burial found by KHP is on the Dunedin Council cemetery website.

The record mentions a cousin. Maybe you can email the "For further information" address on the webpage and see if they have the name/address of the cousin.

Link to burial record...

Thomas Donald jockey??
« Reply #12 on: Thursday 04 August 16 18:08 BST (UK) »
My late uncle Thomas Donald, was born 1903 in Troon, Ayrshire.He  emigrated to New Zealand in 1926, and died in Ranfurley in 1991. He never married. The family legend has it that at one time he was a jockey. Who, and, or where, can I find out if this is true. Is there some kind of central register of jockeys?

Any help would be appreciated

Hi G,

I found New Zealand Racing very helpful when I had a similar enquiry some years ago.

Not part of the brief but I went looking for his death, without success. Was Thomas DONALD his full name?

This looks like this man's death

His birth may not have been registered until 1903
