Is it possible to find out who registered the deaths?

Linda GW may discover that for you on the look up of any Death Cert/Obituary notices.  ;)

No problem - I will also look up the death registrations.  They will state who provided the information.  The obituaries/death notices should also provide names of any children.

I'm not sure if you're still searching but I'm hoping this message reaches you!

I'm also struggling with the Harry Farrant mystery and wondered if you'd managed to find any more information?
I've found three children and two wives - Emilie & Florence but there is also a mention of an Ellen on one of the passenger lists. Very confusing!
I found his son, grandchildren & great grandchild in Vancouver. I suspect after all this time you already know all of this.
