Harry is my uncle and I was unsure of his birth place and of Grans arrival in NZ. Looks like youve nailed it for me, a million thanks.

George and Harry were both born in NZ.  They arrived in the UK from NZ in 1924 on the Ruahine.

Same address given on this record 49 Piggots Street. If I've posted the correct details for Amelia (reply8), Amelia Stanley nee Roberts must have been visiting her parents John Henry & Amelia with her children.

Do you have any information on her husband John Stanley?

I can see a reference to his death in 1958 on familysearch https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QPRF-48YQ

Could Amelia and her husband have travelled separately to NZ?  -

AMENDED to add probably wrong couple as their marriage entry Apr/May/Jun qtr. 1912

Mrs Stanley age 25, housewife
Ship Tainui
Departure London 25 April 1912
Destination Wellington NZ

Jno Stanley age 27, Bridle Cutter
Ship Ionic
Departure London 22 May 1912
Destination Wellington NZ


EDIT to add - you may already have this info. but just in case......

There are a number of public trees on Anc*y - one gives his name as John Thomas Stanley born Brierley Hill, Staffordshire, parents George Stanley & Alice nee HALL, wife Amelia Roberts, this tree has attached the wrong birth entry 1884 Dudley checking GRO indexes shows his mmn DAVIS
