Thank you, that's really helpful. Do you know if there are any children to that marriage? Although they married very late in life I think there may have been children born in the 1920/30's? How can I find out more info?

If you like, I can look for their obituaries next time I am at the Vancouver library.

Have you checked UK BMD records for any births ? Do you have the maiden name of Florence ? (OK - can see the maiden name on the death record)

The death records can be located on this link

I think that they had been together a long time before they married and from what the family can remember they think there were children from the relationship and we kind of assumed that they may have followed family to Canada (seems quite old to emigrate otherwise?) Look up at the library would be brilliant thank you....just trying to get to grips with family trees in Uk, let alone Canada! I couldn't understand why I couldn't find his death in UK! :D

Not finding any births for Farrant and Jarrett - could either of them have brothers or sisters who had immigrated to Canada ?  Or have you accounted for everyone ?

The births would be in Uk? Sorry if that is obvious (complete novice!) Is it possible to find out who registered the deaths?
