Could you please indicate where you found the death information for George Henry Taylor  dying in 1927 and where he died. I have found several Edith Taylor's on the Voters lists in Saskatchewan but no idea if she is the one. Have also checked the Saskatoon Obituary Index and nothing there on this family. Also checked for Nellie but again nothing conclusive.


I have checked the Saskatchewan Genealogy Society Databases but found nothing on this family and nothing in history books.

I am beginning to think they moved from Saskatchewan sometime after the 1921 census. 


This is a real puzzle.

The family could have moved.  I have a photo of George Henry Taylor's grave with "died January 13, 1927" written on the tombstone.  I just assumed they lived in Saskatoon at the time.  They had lived in Crystal City, Manitoba when they arrived in Canada (George's brother Louis was living there at the time).

Hello
Thank you for your reply. Do you know what cemetery George is buried in. We have a lot of relatives buried  in the Woodlawn Cemetery in Saskatoon so have done a lot of research there.

I see from George's attestation papers that they lived in Nutana in 1915 which  was part of Saskatoon as we know it today.

Now its time to check out some further ideas that I have and see if I might hit the jackpot.

Hello Lilybell,
No, I do not know which cemetery George is buried in.  I checked the Saskatoon cemetery lists for his name, but could not find it.  Carol

hi Lilibell,

I am sorry, but I am not able to post the photo of George Henry's grave at this time.  I found the photo in a small case that belonged to his son John Lethbridge Taylor.  On the back of the picture John had written the address of a Mrs. W.R. Wright in London, England.

Hi Carol

Thank you for posting the picture. Now if  I could just figure out where this cemetery is.
Wonder if anyone else might have a clue.
Will put my thinking cap on.

Hello Carol

I wish I had some news about the cemetery where George Henry is buried. Off the top of my head this picture reminds me of a British cemetery just because of the church in the back ground. Could be what is known as a  parochial cemetery  meaning it is a cemetery connected to a church.

After much searching George, Nellie and Edith seem to completely disappear after the 1916 Canadian census. I have searched high and low in different countries Canada,England to be exact but to no avail.
Gilbert's information you already have. John's information also. Mary Alice died out in BC along with her husband James McMahon.

Do you by chance happen to have a obituary for Gilbert George Taylor sometimes they contain information in regards to family. I have seen some obituaries which have been a little gold mine of information.
