Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 59 year old male, married with a fabulous wife and 2 great kids. I am employed as an Ambulance Officer here in Auckland New Zealand. I was formally at Police Officer of 10yrs experience, a Unit Manager at one of our local prisons for 7 years and finally a private investigator which I did for 5 years.
I love fishing and hunting for deer in the many deserted areas NZ still has (we have many, many National Parks). I have always, even as a kid, been interested in graves (not in a morbid way) as it made me think, "these people contributed to make this country". That is why I leave messages as no one should be forgotten as everyone contributes to life.
If you have time visit my mother, Mayzod Elizabeth Hodgson my father Clifford William Hodgson, Grandfather Arthur Alexander Reid, Grandfather John Henry Hodgson, Uncle Harold Parkinson (Waikumete cemetery) and my friends Nicholas Houghton Allen, George Punga Young, Basil William Greenstreet, Kirsten Finlay and finally Kevin Charles Hafford. Thanks

John Ernest Anderson at Purewa Cemetery
Hi Derrick
Do you know if he was the son of William Emslie and Mary Bruce Anderson, as have created memorials for these two people who are interred at the Symonds Street Cemetery.
If they are, would you like me to link them to John?
Kind regards

G'day Derrick,

You may have come across the plaque for the above at Purewa since you prepared the memorial, but if you haven't the reference is: Kidney Garden D Bronze, #28

Regards, Tim
