Nicola ...

This is additional to earlier information given for burial of Letitia.

This is how the Waikumete Cemetery Index records her death ... as WITTINGHAM.
https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/cemeteries/Pages/RecordDetails.aspx?recordId=0x247F3A5D7463BDB81A2B5AF773D30509

Funeral director's  name (LITTLE) given - maybe an Auckland-based chatter can advise if there might be additional information available ?

The records of C Little & Sons are held at Auckland Public Library:

When I was enquiring for an Auckland Public Library look-up here, it was suggested to use the "Ask a librarian" facility.

Death

I can't see Letitia's burial record on the Auckland cemeteries database but the ones I can see

The records for C Little and Sons are held at the research room at the Auckland central library,these are a valuable source of information as they are the sheet the FD filled out when meeting with families and has all the information that went on the death registration

I can't see Letitia's burial record on the Auckland cemeteries database ...

Letitia's burial record along with those of two siblings (Frank and Mary) and her mother, Mary Jane, given in my earlier post.

... Auckland Cemetery database ... has Letitia as "Child WITTINGHAM" .. see also my additional earlier post for this.

Just noting that the WW1 Reserve Roll (Army) listing for Henry, above ^, shows him at the same address > 59 Rose Road, Grey Lynn > as his father > John WHITTINGHAM, master mariner > was listed at for the 1919 election.
