red mail George ADAMS - 1901 census & PO directories
From c 1900-1913 George and Hannah ADAMS moved to Staplehurst, Kent (they'd emigrated to New Zealand). I have a photo of them in front of a row of shops and it is labelled "G. Adams" - The 1911 census has them living at "The Oaks", Staplehurst, . I wondered if they were already in UK for 1901 census?

Then Hannah returned to NZ and was buried there. Thank you for any help
