Have to say I didn't look too closely at the parent's names when posting the link to death certificate, though did notice that the father of Charles Hugh, had also been a Policeman (- my interest was in finding the parents of Rachael Madeline.)   ;)

But yes you are correct with the name "John" for father, although he was actually "John Eric CLIFFORD" - some indexes have "Eric" mis-spelt as "Eary" / "Airey" and "Eyre".
(The same name was given to the son known as Jack, of Charles Hugh and Annie Elizabeth CLIFFORD).   And "Lily" likewise, sometimes spelled as "Lilly" and also named as "Elizabeth" in the death notice of her husband.

Following is the Obituary for John Eric CLIFFORD.

[There was a Probate file for this man (1908), but it appears to be in a batch which has missed being photographed ??]

Hi telephonist ... just some additional information to link Rachael to the family of Charles Hugh CLIFFORD.

Following is a link to John Eric (known as Jack) CLIFFORD (s/o Charles Hugh and Annie Elizabeth) - killed in action at El Alamein, 1942.


In Memoriam notices for Jack CLIFFORD ... which mention his sister, Rachael.

[Incidentally, the BATTISON family who also inserted a notice, seem to be family of Mary Annie CLIFFORD (formerly SENIOR, nee MURPHY) the 2nd wife of Charles Hugh CLIFFORD (marr. 1930).     Iris Mavis (Mavis) SENIOR (dau of Mary Annie) m. Anville BATTISON 1925.]

Just noting that in the engagement notice of 1939, reference is made to "younger daughter of Mr and Mrs C.H. CLIFFORD" of Naylor Street ... late of Kerepehi.
The "Mrs CLIFFORD" mentioned, will though be Rachel's step-mother, Mary Annie CLIFFORD.

Hi telephonist

The "possible" parents (and siblings) named in reply # 5 are not related to Rachael Madeline CLIFFORD.

In the following Probate file for Mary Annie CLIFFORD you will see that in her Will > at Image 252 > she makes bequests to her three step-children, namely Rachael Madeline MORRIS, Cymbaline CARR and Charles Lloyd CLIFFORD.  These were the children of Charles CLIFFORD and his first wife Annie Elizabeth (nee LLOYD).
