Canada / Re: Which cemetery in Manitoba?

Hi,

Date of death from the notice in the paper I posted was Oct 7, 1910 in Winnipeg.  There was another notice in the Winnipeg Free Press on Oct 8th saying that he died on the 7th.  So - both notices agree.  The notice on the 8th was almost identical to the one on the 10th...except the age is very blurry.  Looks like it could be 52 ???.  The age in the other notice was definitely 63.

Date of death from book says Oct 8 1910.

Winnipeg Free Press, Oct 10 1910... says death occurred Friday in the city of William Livingstone, aged 63, of Lake Francis, Manitoba.   Deceased was a solicitor before the Supreme Court of Scotland and eldest son of the late John Livingstone, S.S.C. of Edinburgh.  Remains will be sent today to Lake Francis by C.N.R. (that is the train).

I think the ship is the S.S. Canada - from Liverpool to Halifax. 

Yes - I can see him on the passenger list.  The image isn't very clear on the Library and Archives Canada site.  I don't have access to Ancestry to see if the list is there as well - with a clearer picture.   There is more information on the Form 30A, but here is the full passenger list  - for your records.

Harry is line 15 on page 8 of this list.  It says he is going to Port Arthur.  He is a labourer.  He is returning home.
