Finding my dad, BRIAN, Peter.....

My sister inlaw gave me her father's name a couple of months ago to see if I could do some research and locate him. She had never met him but had only been told his name by her mother, Rose Elliott. My sister inlaw Joyce died yesterday at the age of 53 in Perth, Western Australia of a massive heart attack. Now it is too late for her to establish contact with her biological dad or family I still feel a need perhaps for her children to know something of her father, their grand father.
He was from the information she has given me, Peter Brian. He worked at the Tasman Pulp & Paper mill in Kawerau around 1952. Her mother was Rose Elliott from Te Teko, New Zealand, who is deceased.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
