Hare/Whiteman Family, West Ham, Essex

Hi I am looking for information about my great grandfather and his family. We dont have a lot to go on except my great grandafther THomas Edward Hare came to NZ from England i think around the 1920s, he worked on ships and passed away in a mental hospital here in NZ. His fathers name was also Thomas and his mothers name was Ada Priscilla (maiden name Whiteman). I seem to have hit a brick wall- and not really getting much more information. I would hope to reconnect with some living distant relatives on that side of the family. Being in NZ is there somewhere online i can try and get more information? I dont have a membership to Ancestry or any other site like that. I have found a bit on familysearch.org with census information and they lived in West Ham, Essex? with his father Thomas also working on ships.
Thanks very much
