hi looey,

Robert was born on 25 August 1924
one of the best things to do would be to get a copy of his birth and/or death certificates which will show the names of his parents, spouce etc. This will give you a lot more to go on

are there other living members of your family who can remember the names of his parents, siblings etc ???

do you know his wife's name?, her parents ?

where is he buried? I cannot find him in Christchurch at this time

I beg to differ, I believe this is Robert but the rest of the advice is good
Did Robert marry?
Be careful how you ask the questions
