According to the late 1950's tombstone transcriptions Henry Neale died 22 May 1881 aged 72 years (he arrived in Auckland 25 March 1843) and his wife Amelia Neale died 1 September 1865 aged 54 years. The Parks Department records P 55 of 16/7/1954 and 9/8/1974 at Auckland City Council Archives has that the grave is one chain (22 yards) from Grafton bridge and three chains from Lower Symonds Street in the Wesleyan section.
The tombstone has "Sacred to the memory of Amelia, beloved wife of Henry Neale, who departed this life September 1st 1865 aged 51 years, pass a few swiftly fleeting years and all that now in bodies live shall quit like me the vale of tears, their righteous sentence to receive, tis fit we should to dust return, since such's the will of the most high, in sin conceived to trouble born, born only to lament and die. Henry Neale died 22nd May 1884 aged 72 years, arrived in Auckland March 23rd 1843."
He remarried Mary Ann Neale and owned some Auckland property. The early 1880's map of the Wesleyan section has a Neale grave, with headstone, at 3 D 288.
