They arrive back in Victoria at Launceston which I think is in Australia?

Hi.

I would suggest that the important thing to note here is that the more commom arrival  [departure] point for this area of Australia was Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, then trans-shipping down to Launceston [Tasmania] on the direct inter-island services.

Well I did geography at school but it was about 50 years ago but I've learnt more about Oz since doing family history! I see Jamjar that NSW originally had NZ in it's state as well as half of Oz.

Hello...

Do you know when your Ronald died.

There is the following BDM record:

BDM NZ
1970/39563 - MOSS-MASON, Ronald Grant - 75 years


According to the Burial Locator CD he is buried at Mangere Cemetery (Fiche B04.22)

The following is most likely his probate file...

MOSS-MASON Ronald - Auckland - Salesman - 1970
https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=13101510

---

Do you know if your Ronald was married.

As there is a Margaret Elizabeth MOSS-MASON also buried at Mangere it's possible that she is the following from the NZSG Marriages CD...

1918/3768 - Ronald MOSS-MASON to Margaret Elizabeth MCDONALD

---

Do you know if your Ronald had a son called Ronald John as there is a Ronald John MOSS-MASON also buried at Mangere. By his date of birth I'm assuming he is the first-born of the above couple.

BDM NZ Deaths
1973/45120 - MOSS-MASON, Ronald John - d.o.b 14 April 1919

The above was the son of Edward Moss

Edward Moss Mason is my great great grandfather. I would love to get in touch with anyone interested in chatting about the Mosses or the reason behind the addition of the name "Mason".

Ronald Moss Mason is the son of Edward Moss Mason who was my g g grand father.  The story in the family was that Edward wanted to go on the stage and was disowned by his family so took the stage name of Mason. There is a brief history written by one of his daughters called the Moss Mess which I have a copy of.  I believe he is burried in an unmarked grave in Waihi which I also have the number of

Hello Janice and lanke,
There is quite a lot on here about the Moss-Mason family, also trees on Ancestry owned by people living in the Antipodes. One of whom told me that Ronald Grant assumed the name MOSS MASON; his brother Henry Thomas (Harry)  was MASON; his brother George Edward was MASON.  In the next generation, one of the brothers dropped the Mason and became a Moss again. All this caused me much confusion and the guys and girls on here helped me through it all. It was as Janice said Ronald Grant was an actor and assumed the name for his new profession.
