Sandra,

Thank you SO much for all the information! I didn't expect any replies so for you to reply so quickly is brilliant and the information, particularly the links to the death certificates, is much appreciated.

Your posts have filled in quite a few gaps and explains the 'Ellen' Farrant I'd found on one of the passenger lists - clearly Florence Ellen! It would seem Bertram & Brenda are his children with Florence Ellen Jarrett and Geoffrey C J his son with his first wife Emilie Fry.

Thanks again for your help.

Regards,
Mo

Sandra,
Ignore my assumptions regarding the children - I've just re-read your posts, one of which states Bertram is listed with Harry & Emilie on one of the passenger lists.

When I looked several years ago I did find Harry's obituary, printed in the Vancouver Sun on 19 Mar 1968.  It states that he is survived by wife Florence, son Bertram, daughter Brenda and four grandchildren.  It also gives Brenda's married name and states that she was living in Calgary at the time.
I did find this Alberta obit from 2016 which may be Brenda. - the names and her birthdate match Harry's obit and other information in this thread, as do some of the other details.

I can send you a copy of Harry's obit if you PM me your email address.
