Canada Voters List 1957 Humboldt; Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada  is showing - Mr F S Lindsay (which must be Frank Samuel Lindsay) Mrs F S Lindsay, Joe Lindsay (farmer) Walter Lindsay (farmer) and Mrs Walter Lindsay farmer.

OP said they returned to England but it looks like they all stayed  ???

Thank you so much dbree you have given me some interesting information to read.  Sorry I had got the name slightly wrong, they are Lindsey family.  Also Sandra and RunKitty for all your posts I have just seen.  It will take me a little while to assimilate the information - the first person I can't place is Eli or Era Lindsey.
I have Frances Sarah (Fanny) Lindsey married George Lindsey in England 1882.  It looks like she went to Canada with two sons Walter Lawrence Fred Lindsey, Joseph, Alfred Ernest and daughter Frances Ada who married Robert Scowcroft in Canada.  She left other children in England Sarah Ellen, Robert and George.
As you say it looks like they all stayed in Canada but I have Frances Sarah (Fanny) whose maiden name was Mcmullen marrying again to Francis Cox in England in 1899.  I'm wondering if my Frances's are getting mixed up as her daughter was Frances Ada b.1887 or maybe I have the wrong Frances in England but who was Eli?
I have had problems before with names being changed or nicknames used Sarah Frances McMullen was called Fanny in many places. 
Another interesting piece is the obit for Irene Muriel Mcdermott  (nee Lindsay) is a clue as another branch of our family are McDermotts!
I have a lot to think about at the moment but thank you all very much for what I've received so far.

McMullen, Gleave, Kelly, Scholes, Mather, Phillips, Lock
