I have Alberta marriage certificates from around 1940, They include parents names including mother's maiden name. Birthplace of bride & groom and birthplace of their fathers but not mothers.

You can search digital images of the birth marriage and death indexes here.

http://provincialarchives.alberta.ca/how-to/find-birth-marriage-death-records/Default.aspx

Read the instructions carefully - I found it confusing at first.
Certificates will be mailed to you, it is inexpensive.

Thanks again Sandra. I'll collate all this and discuss the next step with my friend, whose family this is. The fact that Reginald used the name Mabel for his daughter is significant,
