1962/26540 1962 Watana Tereiti 66Y 1896
1970/49539 1970 Watana Walter Tohi 73Y 1897

Is this possibly your great grandparents ? (their death certs from the Births Deaths and Marriages index) If so the 1949 and 1957 Electrol rolls both have Tereiti living in Auckland and she is Ngati Haua and Ngati Werewere. This Walter Watana was buried at Waikumete on 3rd Nov 1970. 

1966/29683 1966 Sylva Martha 55Y 1911


1973/50949 1973 Sylva Joseph 9 November 1908

also their death certs from the BDM Index.
