1871 - 1875 (3 years)
||Mary Ann Myers |
||28 Dec 1871
||Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand 
- Mary's name
Her birth was registered Myers, Mary Helen Myers,
Her death was registered Myers, Ann, and, the burial records have Mary Ann, however,
Her tombstone has her name as Mary Alice.
I have used Mary Ann on the basis that her Mum's middle name was Ann, and possibly Mum spoke to the Funeral director who registered the death and arrange the burial. Just as likely that Dad spoke to the funeral director and got mixed with his wife's name.
I have found a number of cases where Dad registered the birth and never told anybody that he had registered the name differently than they had agreed.
Her tombstone was created 25 years later when Mum died, we don't know who gave that information.
