Thanks, minniehaha,  I was just checking as on Ancestry it said it was 'Totara', Thames Valley. regards, Margaret

There were actually two listings for Elizabeth Annie ROGERS ("NZ Cemetery Records" @ Ancestry")
and if you look at the page which says "Totara, Thames Valley" it is actually headed  "Burial Records - Tauranga NZ - 1881-1992" :   ;)

That's exciting KHP. Have you seen the wording of the death notice? I would love to know please. regards, Margaret

No, I haven't sighted the Death Notice, just a wee mention in one of my resources. :)   It can be viewed at the major libraries, or you could email the National Library at Wellington, clicking on the "Ask a Librarian" link and ask for a copy of the death notice that appeared in the NZ Herald.

Another way to get the Notice is through the Funeral Directors .... wonder who the informant was.

The Funeral Director was Watney Siburn & Sons.

Janette, are they still operating?

Hi KHP,yes they are still in business and usually very helpful,maybe Elizabeth died in Auckland for Sibuns to be involved.I notice on the cemetery records for both William and Elizabeth JONES AND COMPANY FUNERAL SERVICES are listed as the FD.

Here is the email for Sibuns

https://www.fdanz.co.nz/fdanz-funeral-directors

Scroll down to Sibuns.

If you copy and paste the cemetery record to your email it helps get the correct information,

Cheers Janette

Thanks Janette, Watney Sibun was for William.  Perhaps they used two FD's :-\
