I can find little further information about them other than two boat trips made by Myrtle as shown below:

Travelled to Hong Kong on the SS Chusan ( P & O) arriving 12th June, 1967 from London to Cape Town, Colombo and then Hong Kong

 

Travelled from Yokohama, Japan via Shanghai, Colombo, Bombay to London arriving 3rd August, 1935 on board SS Mantua (P & O )

 

This may suggest that they have been resident in the Far East noting that their daughter Olive Eveline was born overseas
