She was Born Hannah Eley 1890 Pilsley, Derbyshire, England. She was a trainee nurse in Mansfield Hospital in the 1911 census. All we know is that she nursed in WW1 and that she met and married a New Zealand Serviceman and that is where it all dries up, she did not marry over here, her (either) children or grandchildren came over in the late 1970's but nobody can remember their surname. They would have come to kirkby in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, England, which is where all their relatives would have been.
I am working on the theory that she nursed wounded service men back to New Zealand, there is no trace of her on passenger ships but I believe that that is not unusual as if she was on a troop ship then I understand that the people on board were not listed as passengers.
