    Hi to the friends, Family &
    Administration of Linwood Cemetery.

    I am really glad I got photos of my relatives graves b4 the Sept earthquake. The head stone of my ggandparents had already fallen down looked to me for some time. Plot No: Block number: 8 Plot number:38 SJG 1894 with husband William Gee & one of their daughters. This is a big marble head stone on the slop so not surprised it had fallen down at some stage.
    I have other relatives in this & surrounding cemeteries I had heard recently that the eastern suburbs were going to be demolished due to liquid faction.
    Is this going to be the case with the Linwood, Ruru Lawn, Bromley,& Memorial Cemeteries? Some of the head stones in other cemeteries are in the ground,others are tall monuments. Funny really My great Uncle was a stonemason so did a lot of stones for the Gee family & relatives.
    At the end of the day my thoughts are with you & the massive task ahead of each & every cemetery in the area. I hope they are preservation for future generations.
    I am in the process of constructing our family tree and hope the cemeteries in this area will be preserved.
    I live in Australia,but wish I was there to help.
    All of Canterburie’s cemeteries are vital for our future generations who are interested in their heritage.
    Since I have started this FT journey myself it is very critical for our heritage to be preserved & honored.
    Both my great grandfathers worked on the Christchurch Cathedral & the Roman Basilica on Barbados street to name a few.

    Kindest Regards

    Netta Gee
