Hi Ketha,

Your Mrs Walter Yewen was Letty Elizabeth (1875-1948)
- she was the wife of Walter Edward Yewen (1868-1938)

Walter died on 26 June 1938 in Wellington
Letty died on 27 June 1948 (note both death dates) in Palmerston North

Walter is buried in Grave 1 - Block 2 at Mangatainoka Cemetery
Letty is buried in Grave 2 - Plot 8 - Block 2 at Mangatainoka

of course, more research will provide more info. What was it you wanted to know about them

kind regards

Why i am looking at Letty is that i had been told she was my ggrandmother Emma Lawrence sister and i am fishing around to find Family as i have nothing about my ggrandparent even if there are silbings or children just family maybe a live or passed over.
My family just dont think there anything because of granddad Lelie James Lawrence/Laurence been kicked out of the family and everything went to the grave.
But i would to do this to complete my family tree and i hope you can help me.
Granddad Leslie James Lawrence/Laurence Birth Nov 1900 Pahiatua-death August 1963 (Drowing)
Grate-grandmother Emma Lawrence 1873-1922 age 49 years buried Mangatinoka.
The one who did Emma Lawrence Service was Father Harold Mongahan at the Anglican Church Pahiatua.

Hi Keitha
Some corrections to ngairedith's posts - Walter & Letty are my great grandparents so I have copies of certifcates etc.
Walter Edward YEWEN died 26 June 1938 in Wellington Hospital - his occupation was listed as waterside worker and usual residence was 17 George St, Wellington.
Letty Elizabeth Coe died 27 June 1948 at 30 Durie Vale Road Wanganui - the home of one of their children.
They had 9 children in total and are both buried in the Mangatanoka Cemetry
