RE: Thank You I have not had a chance to visit the cemetery yet, as I'm in the US now. However, NZ relatives sent me a photo a few years ago, so I was aware of the inscription. I've added a few details to the entries about birth dates, etc. It looks like it has become a bit overgrown with grass in your photo. Anyway, I sincerely appreciate the time you have taken for this. Thanks again.
Just a quick note of thanks for uploading the photos of my grandfather's and grandmother's gravestone in Auckland (John and Gladys Annie Dinah Statter). I see you also located their son, who died young, but would have been my uncle, Francis Peter Yatman Fraser.
Ballantynes Memorial Hi, I just read your message and wanted to confirm that the memorial for the victims of Ballantynes Fire has been destroyed in the Chch earthquake. i was living out of NZ when the earthquake struck & have only just returned. My grandfather was a victim of Ballantynes Fire so my reason for emailing you is a very personal one. I was to go down to Chch in a couple months to visit my grandfathers gravesite. Kind regards Sandra Brown
