The headstone marked the final resting place of 34 year old navy man James Cross. James sadly drowned in Auckland Harbour whilst on a tour of duty in Australian waters in 1894. At the time James’ ship mates all chipped in to pay for the headstone. The headstone has marked James’ final resting place in the old Anglican area at Waikumete Cemetery for over 120 years.
