Frank Gibbons son of Oscar Frank Gibbons

I am trying to find information re Frank Gibbons who married Merle Doris (nee unknown).
Frank and Merle are buried together at Wakapuaka Cemetery, New Zealand. I have a photo of their headstone. The inscription reads Frank died 17th Oct 1952 in an accident and he was 44yrs old. This would put his birth year at 1908!! Which makes him 13yrs younger than his father Oscar Frank and 8years younger that his mother Caroline Sarah Gibbons (nee Rush)
I have checked the New Zealand BDM info and the above is the only info I can find!!!
