Thames (NZ): Shortland Cemetery at Find A Grave

Just an update on the project to add as many as possible of the burials for the Shortland Cemetery in Thames. Thanks to the amazing assistance given by "JJ" the majority of names are listed now at Find A Grave.

There will be cases perhaps of double-ups where surnames have in some cases multiple spelling options. So be creative when you search and try just adding the first letters of a surname to get the result you want.

If you find a grave of an ancestor, who has a memorial created by someone else, you can ask to take management of that memorial. Thereby easily updating and adding information as you are able. You can add death notices, photographs of the deceased plus biographical information.

So check it out, now and see if any of the 6,600 plus names are members of your family tree.
