This may possibly be of interest to GARDENER/GARDINER and MUMFORD families in Warwick, England.
From a New Zealand Government death printout:
WILLIAM MUMFORD died at Brook Street, Valley, Nelson, New Zealand, on 4 October 1880, aged 30 years. He was a labourer.
He had suffered acute double pneumonia for eight days, and his death was certified by medical practitioner Jas. Hudson, who had previously seen him alive on 3 October 1880.
The deceased was a son of labourer EDWARD MUMFORD and his wife ANN MUMFORD, formerly GARDINER.
He had been born in Warwick, England, where he had married when aged 22 years. His wife's name is given as Ann Gardiner [his mother's name before marriage - surely this is a mistake].
The deceased had been in New Zealand for five years.
He is listed as having three sons [not named].
He was buried at the Nelson Cemetery on 5 October 1880. The minister of religion present was the Revd. James Leighton, Episcopalian Minister.
The informant was the undertaker at Nelson, TW Trune
[? name hard to decipher]. Registrar: Robt. Kirton [?]
8 October 1880.
The printout extract is numbered as death no. 138 in the District of Nelson in New Zealand for the quarter ended 31 December 1880. The extract is also [twice] numbered as 1583.
This information does not relate to any Mumford I am researching, but someone else may find this relevant and interesting.

On the same date I had a reply from Kathleen Burgar with more data (note the spelling of 'Gardener' rather than 'Gardiner'):
“I know you’re not related but had to post this somewhere.”

Possible marriage in 1873 Warwick district to Sarah Jane Gardener.
There are 3 other possibles as well in Warwickshire 1871-1875.
Was William Mumford's wife Sarah Jane Gardener related to William's mother, Ann Gardener (Mrs Edward Mumford), ie some degree of cousin?
Thanks, Kathleen, this data may help some researcher.
