HELP please .. James Maurice Pearce & Ada Iris Baker NZ

Journal by ngairedith

James Maurice 'Jim' Pearce
* was born about 1900, probably in England

He married Ada Iris Baker in New Zealand on 2 March 1929
* Ada was born 1898 in England, emigrating in 1923 with her sister Catherine Baker
As far as I know Jim & Ada lived in Wellington and Masterton and very possibly Lower Hutt

* Jim died 10 Feb 1952 aged 51
He was cremated in Wellington, New Zealand, his ashes were taken away

Ada moved to Napier and lived there apparently until her death

* Ada died 27 Nov 1970 aged 72
She was cremated in Hastings, Hawkes Bay, her ashes taken away

* Does anyone have any information on this couple please?
* I cannot find birth info for either of them in NZ. Possible they emigrated here
* I don't think they had children but you may know more
* Someone? took their ashes away and maybe they are buried together somewhere or maybe the ashes were scattered. It is also possible Ada took Jim's ashes 'home' to England but she returned to NZ after 1955 as I visited her often in Napier and attended her funeral in 1970

PHOTO
Jim loved to paint. He painted this scene in the late 1940s, of an Island in Queen Elizabeth Park, Masterton, from the swing bridge (apparently)
