Looking for REEVE in New Zealand

Query by JimmyW

Can someone help with an exact birth date and location for Hilda May REEVE born in 1889. She married Herbert HIRST, and died on 8th October 1977 and is buried in Masterton cemetery, New Zealand. The names of her parents would also be a great help. Hilda was my wife's Grandma. Thanks

hello Jummy,

Hilda was born 19 April 1889 to Alfred REEVE & Elizabeth SEXTON
- not yet known where exactly she was born. She had a sibling born in Wellington

- she married Herbert HIRST (1883-1960)
- a son of George Henry HIRST & Elizabeth Wadman HOOPER
- a grandson of Sydney HIRST & Mary SYKES

the Masterton cemetery datasbase has her aged 80 on 7 October 1977
this is incorrect, she was 88

she is buried with Herbert, who died 4 December 1960 aged 77, in Row 11, Area Plan VIII at Archer street.
Herbert and Hilda also lived in Woodville and Eketahuna

This has been a great help, thankyou. I have seen the headstones of Hilda and Herbert HIRST and also that of Sydney and Mary HIRST. My next mission is to find where George and Elizabeth are buried.
