Maungaturoto Congregational Church Cemetery Records going digital

Over the last few days I've been inputting the cemetery records of the Maungaturoto Congregational Church Cemetery on line. It's still a work in progress because of the large volume of names that are on the burial register. It will be the first in the Kaipara District to be available on the internet. The website is searchable. I'm working my way through the surnames starting with B at the moment. These include plot no, name and date of death plus age of the deceased. Photos of the gravemarkers are included where possible, and any relevant information. You can view the cemetery records here

Have you discovered an Arthur Bertram Jones anywhere in this cemetery, he was an only child to Fanny Lowe Bailey (nee Jones, nee Cullen) and a Arthur Robert Jones who passed away in England in the 1890's. Fanny and members of her family emigrated to NZ, Maungaturoto in the early 1900's. Her sister who had emigrated much earlier Eleanor Jane Bailey married Henry Cullen in Maungaturoto 9th September 1869; she passed away in 1918 and then Fanny married Henry the following year in 1919.
If you can help me in any way would be greatly appreciated.
I am travelling to Maungaturoto in few weeks time to do some searching myself.
