Hillsborough Cemetery, Auckland - map?
« on: Wednesday 17 June 15 02:41 BST (UK) »
Hi,

Does anyone have a layout or map of Hillsborough Cemetery?

I have traced my gt-gt-gt grandmother to there, Area 8 Block V Lot No 136.

It's only an hours drive for me to get there, but it looks like quite a large cemetery. I would prefer not to spend too much time aimlessly wandering around looking for her.

I cant find anything on the Council website.
If you have a map or know where Area 8 Block V Lot No 136 is, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks, SpudKiwi

Janette has an excellent map of Hillsborough cemetery.
This week is looking like rubbish for me, so hopefully next week I'll be able to pop up to the big smoke to find gt-gt-gt- grandmother Mary.

I meant to say that from memory the plot you are after is on a fairly steep slope,mind your footing  ;D ;D in the past I have kissed the ground in several cemeteries  ::) ::) ::) ::)
