Thames (NZ): Death Certificates for Tararu Cemetery

 The Death certificates for TARARU CEMETERY 1873-4-5 are available at Auckland Archives (ABWN  8102 W5279 184 / AUC 842). With special thanks to 'my archives helper', a copy of these is now available view at The Treasury, Thames.

The Death certificate varies from what we would expect today. It has the name of the deceased and the date of registration with the Registrar.  This was necessary in order for the burial to take place.
