It looks like the Tauranga cemetery record is incorrect

Plot Id:    PRESBYTERIAN*B3565
Warrant Id:    B3565
Warrant Type:    BURIAL
Ashes:    
First name:    WILLIAM HENRY
Surname:    ROGERS
Date of Birth:    
Age:    84
Date of Death:    01/04/1965
Burial/Cremation Date:    01 APR 1965
Funeral Director/Family Representative:    JONES AND COMPANY FUNERAL SERVICES
Cemetery:    PRESBYTERIAN
Block:    SECTION 5A
Row:    4
Plot Location:    56

On narrowing the date of death it come out as

1965/38295   Rogers    William Henry    84Y exact date is 30/3/1965

I was wondering how they managed to bury him the same day as he died if he was transported from Auckland to Tauranga ;D ;D

Maybe Jones and Company can supply death notices

Perhaps Margaret could mention the typo of death date at same time.
