There is a burial - with no details, for Hans PREBERSON in Hamilton West cemetery.

Jane, wife of Hans PREBENSON, is recorded on NZ Death index as >

1917 - PREVERSEN - Jane - 43 years

Still looking for date of death for Hans (under a variety of spellings of surname  ::) ).

Jane's death notice > under PREBENSON > seems to indicate her husband is still alive.

In the year following, there was an In Memoriam notice placed in a local newspaper by Jane's parents and siblings (no mention though of Hans).

I wonder if the "burial" I found for Hans, above, is in fact a plot reservation.

I have always wondered that too... It is very unusual that the record for Hans' plot has no details listed. After his wife died he moved back to Taihape.

Hi Ashnz and John ... was about to also say I thought it may be a plot purchase at the time of Jane's death.

Ashnz .... wonder if an email to the cemetery might clarify the situation ?  I know the online record doesn't carry much info ... but they may be able to tell you about the purchase of both plots and the  date(s) ?

I've searched the NZ Death Index (@ ancestry) up to 1930 and can't see a death for a Hans (Johan / Johannes / etc) which might be applicable.

Might he have returned to his homeland ?    (Or perhaps skipped across the Ditch, to Aus ?? )

I've had a quick look at the Danish records on Family Search...they have census information up to 1930. This Hans doesn't seem to be there (There is a person of the same name, but he was married in Denmark in 1903).

As Hans was not listed on the 1919 NZ electrol roll (or the subsequent following elections) - I tried to find out whether it was compulsery back then to enroll to vote. Maybe he had died?

If he did die then it's place his death between May and December of 1919.

Strange he had no death certificate - I get the feeling his late wife's family (the Banfield family) - who was living in Taihape at the time - may have just taken him to Hamilton and buried next to his wife. I looked at the original burial record and in pen it is just written "buried"
