Bernard Sydney Rowe born 1917 New Zealand
« on: Monday 03 June 19 21:49 BST (UK) »
Would be very grateful for any info or advice relating to a Bernard ( Bernie) Sydney Rowe born 1917 in either Auckland or Wellington I believe, although there could be a link to Nelson area. Parents were Olive St Hill Jordan and Sydney Rowe.
Many thanks

Bernard's date of birth was 31.10.1917.

You might have to obtain a printout for the registration details you require. These are cheaper than a certificate and may contain more information. Can be e-mailed.

Death of divorced wife [also mother of his children?]....

2011/23706   Rowe   Hazel Elizabeth   10 September 1915


I have her newspaper death notice which names the children. This I can send to you by personal message but you will need to put up a couple more posts before I can do this. Just a  :) in each will do the trick.  :)

[I also have the year of their marriage.]

Is this what you thought was a possible Nelson connection?

https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=20808304&digital=yes

However, the regimental number does not tie in with that stated in Sydney's death notice @ Reply #4.

[1897*/6170   Rowe   Sydney   Mary   George

*1895 according to above war file.]

Added later-

Here is the correct war WW1 file:

https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=24063074&digital=yes

His birth:

1890/1693   Rowe   Sidney   Harriett Martha   William John

Actual date of birth [2.3.1890] ties in with that recorded on his WW1 file.

WW2 file is included. Stated to have been born @ Thames.

Wife, Violet Rowe. ? See page 53
