It would be interesting to know if there could be any significance attached to the choice of names for their daughter.
Nora Emily Augusta.

 It may help us find the family of Ernest Charles

Perhaps Jock could say whether any are family names connected to Constance Ruth Mary's side.

At the time of his marriage and the death of his wife, Ernest Charles STEPHENS was an employee of J and W Bateman who were an old established firm of merchant shipowners in Western Australia.  The company had many different  arms.

I can find no further definite information about the man, but this may offer a hint.
1914

The role of a man named E C STEPHENS at J and W Bateman is handed to another, as STEPHENS "returns to a seafaring life"

Her mother was Emeline Stevens 1865 - 1914, chance she went as Emily?
