Hi Tony

I found these two records on Archway which appear to be your couple


1926 - MARTIN: Thomas Lumsden Railway Guard, Invercargill High Court, Held
Dunedin - DAFG/9067/D328/65/158/26

1931 - MARTIN: Jessie Lumsden Widow, Invercargill High Court, Held Dunedin -

Below is the link which should get you to the index have a look around as
you may find other family members on there. you can order these records over
the net for a fee from Archives NZ or if you are lucky some one on a list
may be willing to do a look up for you or if you are confident that these
are your people you should have enough info here to order the Death Records
from NZ BDM

Good luck
