My great grandmother Margaret (O’Rourke) Gaffaney is buried in Bromley Cemetery, Christchurch, New Zealand, along with her husband Peter Dominic Gaffaney, their son Michael Dominic and his wife Agnes (Burke).

The monumental masons managed to bodge both gravestones – getting the date of death wrong for my great grandfather, and again for his son.

Many thanks to the kind Trade Me genealogy forum member who located and photographed the gravestone for me.
