Not sure how much of this you already know, but some information I found from searching using, which normally has a bit more detail than Ancestry does:

Robert's birth:

Registration Number        1918/1978
Family Name                    Taylor
Given Name(s)                 Robert Edward Conway
Mother's Given Name(s)  Muriel
Father's Given Name(s)   Conway Morten


Robert's father's birth (not sure when or why he changed his middle name from Whitfield to Morten):

Registration Number         1893/4385
Family Name                     Taylor
Given Name(s)                  Conway Whitfield
Mother's Given Name(s)    Emily Charlotte
Father's Given Name(s)     Herbert


Probably Conway's parents marriage:

Registration Number          1891/3631
Bride's Given Name(s)       Emilie Charlotte
Bride's Family Name          Murphy
Groom's Given Name(s)    Herbert
Groom's Family Name       Taylor


I can't find any record of Robert's father Conway marrying his mother Muriel in New Zealand. However since he enlisted in WW1 a slightly speculative possibility for the marriage might be:

Name                                                   Conway M Taylor   
Event Type                                           Marriage   
Registration Quarter                            Apr-May-Jun   
Registration Year                                 1916   
Registration District                              Chertsey   
County                                                  Surrey   
Event Place                                          Chertsey, Surrey, England   
Spouse Name (available after 1911)    Kirk    
Volume                                                 2A   
Page                                                    155   
Line Number                                        133   
Conway M Taylor probably married one of the following people
Name Muriel Kirk

"England and Wales Marriage Registration Index, 1837-2005," database, FamilySearch ( : 22 May 2014), Conway M Taylor and null, 1916; from “England & Wales Marriages, 1837-2005,” database, findmypast ( : 2012); citing 1916, quarter 2, vol. 2A, p. 155, Chertsey, Surrey, England, General Register Office, Southport, England.

Hi there Paul.

Thank you for that information, I had come across a Conway Morten Taylor in my search.
I never thought about him changing his middle name.

You have been a great help.

I will do some research on these people.
