Dorothy Mary Wilson, divorced, aged 30 married D'arcy Robinson Coupland, aged 45, divorced broker at Vancouver 25 November 1922.

Dorothy's parents is shown as Georgina (nee Hawkings) born Australia and Arthur Nichols, born Bristol, England. Dorothy was also born in Australia.

As there doesn't seem to be BC death records for Dorothy, D'arcy, Georgina and Arthur is it possible they returned to Australia?
