This must be his Birth entry, but I cannot see him on the England or Wales 1901 census!

Births Sep Quarter of 1894
~~~~~~~~
 
Cox, William Henry Ledbury District 6a 412



Do you have his Marriage Certificate naming his Father?


In the 1911 census index there is a plain Henry Cox c1895 born Ledbury, living in the Bedwellty District of Monm' (where he married). You will have to obtain credits to view his household.


However, now I look again at the Ledbury area in the 1901 census there are some excellent correlations with this family and the Bedwellty index 10 years later.

From FamilySearch death of William Henry Cox
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.2/MN52-JBP/p1

Death for his wife
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.2/MN5J-HMV/p1

I didn't look for any children but information on them might also be available from FamilySearch.

Canada follows the same census pattern as England.  The next census release will be the 1921 census in a few years time.  The United States has released their 1930 census which you might be confusing with Canada.

Too many Cox surname to distinguish more, but the parents appear to be buried here...pge 2&3
Someone might be able to do a lookup to determine who gave the info for the father at death.
You can also write through the same site above for cemetery details
