The death registration fiche for 1903 clearly shows the name of KAINA Anna.

Also the fiche for 1897 clearly shows the name of KAINA George. His death was registered @ Awhitu.

I noted the details archived re the funeral directors account.

C Little, Undertaker, Embalmer, Marble Arch, Hobson Street, Auckland.

Date of death:14th June 1903.
Instructions for the Funeral of Anna Kaina from Little Sisters.
Medical attendant:Dr. Bayntu(?)n
Clergyman:R.C.
Hearse:-------
Number of carriages:-------
Description of coffin:--------
Which cemetery:Waikumete Govt. 2.2.0
Date & time of funeral:Wednesday. 2 p.m. Wednesday 17th.
Bearers:--------
Hat bands:---------
Conducting:-------
Advertising:--------

Not many details at all for this one. I asked at the library about the "Govt." written beside the name of the cemetery and the suggestion was the possibilty that it may have been a pauper's grave.

Anna was buried in

 Plot : ANGLICAN DIVISION F Row 15, Plot 50

Interesting it was a RC funeral and she was buried in an Anglican, plot maybe there was no family and as she had been in Little Sisters of the Poor they organised the funeral,it would not be a paupers grave.

The Govt beside Waikumete may indicate it was a council cemetery rather than a church cemetery

Cheers Janette

Yes I noted the burial in the Anglican part of the cemetery but the clergyman was R. C. I feel that because all the details re expenditure were blank except for the plot/burial cost, this possibly led the library staff into thinking that it may have been a pauper's grave.

Hey thanks for the massive help everyone! Yes Elisabeth is turning out to be the mystery one. She was born in Drehnow Prussia in 1845 as Elisabeth KOSSATZ. Her father died in 1850 and her mother Anna married again - to Georg KAINA in 1854. The whole Kaina family emigrated to South Africa in 1859 and Elisabeth is on the passenger list.  It's the passenger list for the 'Alfred' to NZ in 1864 that she's not on, although she is (? Lissa ... or E-Lissa) in the newspaper report of the arrival. (Her sister Anna was 'just Anna'.) For some reason her 3 sisters reverted to using their birthname KOSSATZ, but I can't find Elisabeth under either name! She would have been age 19 when the family arrived in NZ.
(As if a budding genealogist hasn't enough to deal with without these crazy mis-spellings, but considering they would have been hardly 'fluent' in English and probably only wrote in Wendische, I guess I should consider myself lucky!)

Seeing as the KAINA's religion was Wendish, the undertaker probably flipped a coin regarding the last rites - and it came down RC for the funeral and Anglican for the burial!

Anna was in a RC home for the elderly poor when she died

Hi again. I've been told the Kaina farm was across the road from the Waddoups Farm (that was subsequently sold to the Aylward family), and that the adjacent road junction was for years known locally as 'Kaina's Corner'.
It would be nice to be able to pinpoint the location or find the actual road names that 'Kainas corner' was on. The Waiuku Library/Museum confirms there are Waddoups graves in the Waipipi Cemetery, but had nothing at all on the Kaina family. In fact they'd never even heard of them!
With George's death being registered in Awhitu it would seem likely he was buried locally... but there is no on-line cemetery lists for the Waiuku/Waipipi/Awhitu area. Can anyone suggest a possible avenue to persue?
