Walter E Bagnall Bishop of Niagra 1949
« on: Tuesday 30 October 12 17:32 GMT (UK) »
Walter was born in Birr, Ireland, 1903 and was educated at the University of Western Ontario. He died 1984
I know he was married but have no details of his marriage and if there were any childres. An OBIT would be fantastic.
All help would be very much appreciated.

Since he was a more well known figure you should contact the public library closest to where his death occurred or where his career with the church ended and request they look for an obituary for you.

The Niagara Falls library should be able to help you as they have a "hit" for his death in their database

Many thanks for all the help.
Would it be possible to find his entry into Canada and where he was going to stay. His father was Michael George and his mother, Ellen Hankinson.

Many thanks. Would now like to find when he crossed the pond and if he was alone and if it showed where he was going to in Canada.
