Do you know when / where / who he married. When / where did he die. You have a birth certificate for one of his children. What does it give for Gordon's age...birthplace....occupation etc.

You can do a lot of this yourself. Use the NZ BDM site to find birth for Gordon, 1905.

Using mother's name, find her marriage, 1913, and birth of child, 1914.

Mother has a distinctive given name, and you can see her birth, 1887.

Gordon's mother, Ovitt Elizabeth PETHERBRIDGE died 1956.

Does this sound like your family?.
