There are 2 x Arthur James WALLACEs in the 1928 Tasman electoral roll. One at Bainham, a motor driver, who I guess is the son, and one at Inangahua Junction, a labourer.

There is a divorce case at the Archives

Wallace, Maria Maud (R21955301)   1926 - 1926

Item ID   Agency   Series   Accession   Record group   Box / Item   Sep   Record no.   Part   Alternative no.   Record type
R21955301   AAOO   17997   W5444      4 /      2/26      

Interesting that Arthur is not named in the divorce

Bad news Barrie. There is a 100 year restriction from, in this case, 1926, before you are able to view the divorce records.......

If Arthur died in New Zealand, these two deaths are the nearest I can get to a possible registration........


1958/38108   Wallace   Arthur   78Y [Archives show:Linden-Retired civil servant.]

1970/47049   Wallace   Arthur   90Y [Archives show:Tauranga-retired farmer.]


Deaths are not always registered in the person's full name and their age is not necessarily accurate either.

Thanks for that Lu. Good to have both men conclusively ruled out.

Looks as if we may have to look across the Tasman. I found some death notices for an Arthur James Wallace in Australia but the accompanying information appeared to rule out the New Zealand born man.
