Owen Sutton grave at Bromley
Zelda Sutton sitting at the grave of Owen Sutton in Bromley Cemetery.
Contributor's note: "My mothers brother Owen Sutton was killed in a traffic accident in Christchurch during World War II. He was just about to be sent for training in Canada, as Air Crew. He had been married about a year, and this photo shows his widow, Zelda, sitting on his grave at Bromley cemetery, not long afterwards, probably when the headstone was put in place."

Thank you for that information. I am not sure if Zelda did remarry, something that could be investigated though.
Oh that is so sad. Did Zelda remarry? Here is the circumstance of his death if you haven't already seen https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/AG19411002.2.13?items_per_page=100&page=6&query=death+sutton&snippet=true&sort_by=byDA.rev Bromley is one of my favourite cemeteries, some interesting graves. My own grandparents and 2 great grandmothers are buried here. Regards Sarndra
