Details about Frederick William Garard DOB c 1862 London England

Question by GeorgeGarard

I have the death cert for my great grandfather Frederick William Garard who died in Hamilton New Zealand in 1937. He was listed as 75 years of age but no DOB details except his father Frederick Garard (Army Tailor) and Emma Willard his mother.
Frederick William was born in London, England c. 1862.

Frederick William Garard arrived in Auckland New Zealand by ship with his aunt about 1875 from the UK. Estimated age on arrival in New Zealand is 13 years of age. Then he settled in Garrett Street Wellington, New Zealand.

He was employed as an Expressman (Train driver) in Wellington and married Mary Ann Paul in 1886 in Wellington NZ.
They had the following children:

George William Garard DOB 1887 Wellington NZ
Walter Frank Garard DOB 1888 Richmond Nelson NZ
Frederick Stephen Francois Garard DOB 1890 Wellington NZ Died 1890 aged 3 months.
Frederick Charles Garard DOB 1892 Wellington NZ
Eva Louisa Garard DOB 1898 Wellington NZ

Frederick William and Mary Ann divorced c. 1906 in Wellington

Frederick William shifted to Masterton NZ then to Kihikihi NZ and married Mary McGaughey. He worked as a Painter and Decorator in KihiKihi NZ and they had one daughter. They later shifted to Hautapu NZ and in 1937 he died in the Waikato hospital in Hamilton NZ. He is buried in an unmarked grave in the Hamilton East cemetery. I have the grave details.

He is survived by grand children, great grandchildren and great great grand children.

Mary Ann shifted to New Plymouth NZ and married a Mr Archibald and had two daughters to him.

I am interested in verified details about Frederick William Garard DOB and location when he lived in the UK.

I would be tempted to buy a copy of the 'printout' of his marriage to Mary Ann Paul on 31 October 1886, BDMNZ Registration Number: 1886/2873. His parents should be recorded on this and he would have provided the information himself for the marriage.
Death records can be notoriously wrong as it is someone else providing the information.

It is worth noting other online trees record his parents as George Garard and Caroline English.

Do you know the Aunties Name? She may have a probate-will that could reveal additional information.

Cheers
