The Grave of Sir James Hector

Taita Cemetery
Wellington, New Zealand

A special request for interested New Zealanders

The above photograph was sent to the Historical Research Centre in 1992. A note sent with the picture said we think we have a repair organized but so far as I know there is no progress so far.

If you get a chance to visit the site, please email us an update which we will be happy to post on this page.

In answer to our above request Dr. Jaap Jasperse of the Royal Society of New Zealand made a trip to the site of Hector's grave in late 1996 to see what progress had been made.



How do I participate in the student Sketchbook Project?
