About the Records
No cemetery records exist today. Information, not sourced from headstones, has been taken from burials recorded on death registrations at the Owaka Post Office (now demolished) and were originally transcribed by group member, the late Roma Buchanan, in the 1970’s. These date from 1898 to 1929
