After leaving Sadler's in 1948 the family emigrated to New Zealand. 

When they arrived in N.Z in 1948,  both Harry and Doris worked for Crown Lynn Potteries. 
Doris, up until about 18 months before she died of cancer, on the 21st February, 1969, and Harry up until about 1970. He died of lung cancer on the 12th of October, 1975.
No doubt that living in the dreadful pollution of the Stoke-on-Trent area must have contributed to their ill health.
