Has anyone any information on Robert Joseph McIlroy, who married Margaret Teresa Kayes in Birmingham in the March Quarter of 1937 please? This is for someone overseas.

He appears to have been a Professor of Chemistry in various countries saying he was born around 1912. This may be him.

Birth Date: Jul-Aug-Sep 1911
Registration Place: New Plymouth, New Zealand

He may also be the same person below.

I can't find him in any electoral census afterwards so assume he is the following person.

He had a son born in Birmingham and twin daughters.
