Steven Claud WARD NX8872 was a POW, Stalag IIID, Germany https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/130483271

Port Macquarie News 13 Sept 1941
Mr and Mrs E S Ward were very please to hear news of their son, Gunner S C Ward who had been reported missing ..... telegram from Army .... Private Ward prisoner of war.   ... NX8872 Gunner Steven Claud Ward previously reported missing, is now reported prisoner of war, interned Stalag IIID, Germany.

Mr and Mrs E S Ward...  We already know that E is for Edward, so is it possible that S is for Steven?

From the 1937 NSW electoral roll for OXLEY, polling at Port Macquarie  (you needed to be 21 to enrol)
Edward Steven WARD, Eucla, Owen Street,  salesman
Victoria Mabel WARD, Eucla, Owen Street, home duties

Marriage 1925   Edward S A WARD and Victoria M PERFREMENT, registered Manly district of NSW NSW BDM #13082. 

I am doubting that online tree  ::)

NSW Electoral Roll 1968  LOWE polling Ryde
Edward Steven Alfred WARD 36 Anzac Ave, public servant
Victoria Mabel, 36 Anzac Ave, home duties

NSW BDM has death registrations
1971 Edward Steven A WARD, registered Sydney #2749
1974 Victoria Mabel WARD, #12321

Either the 1925 marriage registration or the death registration for Edward should give you information about his marital status and the names and ages of children of his marriage/s.  If you were to seek to obtain the NSW BDM records, then may I suggest that Official transcriptions are a good alternative to the more expensive real deal certificates.  See : http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,300394.0.html

PROV Unassisted Passenger List
https://prov.vic.gov.au/explore-collection/explore-topic/passenger-records-and-immigration

"Demosthenes"  arrived Melbourne  Feb 1922
WARD Alfred       34y      page 5       
WARD Ura          32y       page 5
WARD Stephen    1y        page 5

HOLDEN Sarah   49y       page 4
HOLDEN Harold  19y       page 4
HOLDEN Seth     13y       page 4
HOLDEN Dennis    5y      page 4

I confirm that the Stephen WARD on that passenger list that wivenhoe has kindly typed up is noted as aged 1.  The spelling on that list is Stephen with 'ph' and aged 1 year.  It is not Steven aged 4 years.

May I mention that the surname WARD is one of the more popular surnames.   

JM

The outward passenger list for this family (part of which is posted in other thread) shows the country of last residence as Scotland - not sure if that agrees with what is known?

M

ADD
Last address 22 Yonge Park, Finsbury Park, N4 (which is in London)

Yes, M,  there's just not enough dots joining up.

Yes, Carole.

Quite a chequered history.  She was my 1st cousin, twice removed.

I have been in touch with the Australian branch of the family since 2010, gradually we pieced together her life.

She married Alfred Ward in 1909, had 3 children before he went off to war in 1915.

She married again in 1917 as a widow, her first husband arrived back the following year. I have been told that she was informed that he was missing, presumed dead, whereas in fact he was a POW.

They went off to Australia in 1922 as I said, she returned to England, further child born as Hubbard the following year.

Tracing her rather unusual first name through electoral registers she ended up with Albert Edward Langley. He is in Wembley in 1939. I don't think they married, as both Alfred Ward and Ernest Hubbard were both still alive, but she lived as Langley until she died in 1974.

Regards Margaret

Here's Alfred WARD known to our OP to be still alive in the 1930s ....   so I am doubting that ESA and VM Ward and their son Gunner SC Ward have been shown to have a family history connection to Ure Beatrice LANGLEY formerly HUBBARD and earlier WARD, nee HOLDEN.

If this is the correct birth registration
March 1920 Marylebone 1a 1228
Ward,  Stephen C.
mother Holden   

Why not give out the full details from the cert, presuming you have it.
