John, you need to provide at least the information that you have for others to assist you.  If you provide LESS than all that you know, then you should expect us to have LESS success than you have had.

You don't even mention which century he died in let alone a likely decade.

The majority of NZ Cemeteries have online records that are linked from a collection of links on the Christchurch Library website - try looking at the websites listed here...
go to  and search for cemetery records.

If this person has a profile, then set it to have a public bio and populate it with everything you know that is relevant - and edit your question to link to it !  There are lots of people here that are keen to help but they need to know at least what you do.

Please use the edit option under your question (when you are logged in) to add the extra information to your question, then I'm sure that you will get lots of help.

I have checked the Old Napier cemetery database but no sign of him.

Can you clarify his approx date of birth and where in NZ he might have lived and died.
