Hi Adele & all:

Re Walter Alfred Hart, he has a card in the "Non-War Graves" card index at
Archives NZ, Wellington, which says he died 31-7-55 at Carterton and is
buried in the Carterton Public Cemetery. He was a Private in the South
African War No 1298, 4th Contingent; his widow was Mrs Amy Hart, 36 Wyndham
St Carterton. Unlike some of the cards it does not give his age or the plot
he was buried in. So probably nothing that you did not know already! His
file was destroyed 14-3-58.

The ex-servicemans burial/plaque could be arranged through the Department of
Internal Affairs, and now through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Not
the RSA, and not the CWGC or Commonwealth War Graves Commission which was
for deaths on active service and had cutoff dates for WWI of 31 Aug 1921 &
WWII of 31 Dec 1947. See:

Yours, John Wilson

Am after a soldiers grave, not in RSA, who served in a War, we have no
idea of names.... was told that possibly two such graves at Clareville
Cemetery, found one, Walter Alfred Hart, served in Boer War.. this is
on the family plot.. is there another grave at this cemetery
please...yes Clareville has the designated areas for soldiers graves,
but this actual request is not for one of those, there are two areas
up there for RSA graves then another area for cremation plots.
