Just spoke to the Alberta Archives in regards to death records for Alberta and you can request a long copy of James's death record.

Contact  pao.gov.ab.ca. It is a 2 page form 1st page contains medical information and 2nd page is the actual death registration. Only fee involved is for the photo copying.

Records older than 50 years are open records.

When you contact the Archives give your name,contact info and name of person you are researching  and his date of death.

How brilliant everybody, especially about the obit...that is a real clue. Will keep persuing, we did know about the child by second marriage....namely Christian.  Now to find out what the heck he was doing in Canada all those years.    FYI, he left home one day and never came back, said he was going for cigarettes!!!!

This is a pay site but there is an obituary for a Lillian Gordon Allan that you can obtain whose death was in 1960.

Hi,

Just adding on to lilybell's find, there is an expanded obit. for Lillian Dec. 17, 1960. It adds that she
was born in Manchester, England and came to Calgary 31 years ago, also survived by a sister and
brother in England.
