William Henry Rogers, Thames
« on: Wednesday 03 January 18 08:09 GMT (UK) »
William Henry Rogers born 1881 Spitalfield, Middlesex, UK Married 1906 Thames NZ Elizabeth Annie West. In 1914- living at Okoroire, 1928 William - Storeman at Maungaturoto, 1957 - they are living in Tauranga.  My query is - did William & Elizabeth have a family?
William Henry's parents are both first cousins of my Grandfather.
Hoping someone can help me. Kind regards, Margaret.

Looking on NZ BDM's I don't see any obvious births for them

Hi Jeanette,
Thank you so much for site of the cemetery. I have saved a photo of the Headstone. No, it doesn't look like there were any children.  Is the cemetery in Tauranga or Thames do you know?  Also there is a Will for both of them through Archive Auckland. Perhaps I should purchase a copy - especially William as he died after Elizabeth - would that give me clues?  regards, Margaret

I do wish Ancestry would review and put right their cemeteries  they make it so hard to work out.

Cheers Janette

Just looked, shows the Registration Place was Tauranga.   There was a Death Notice put in the paper.
