Inbound travel to Scotland - 1925 - 1935?
« on: Tuesday 23 January 18 15:38 GMT (UK) »
Hi All,

I'm still working to piece together some details for a particular family member - Richard Craddock Gray (b.10 OCT 1892). I have birth, marriage (both), Canada Immigration, divorce and death records, but I am hoping to fill in some of the story. 

We know he arrived in Canada in 1924, and left shortly after, likely between 1925 - 1930. He resurfaces in the records again in 1944 with a divorce & second marriage. What we don't know is exactly when and why he left Canada, or what he did until 1944 (except for that he picked up the trade of being a slater). Any idea how I can fill in some of these blanks? Does Scotland have records of inbound boat travel from 1925 - 1935?

Thank-you!

Scotland's - Return passenger Lists records would be the same as those in the UK collection.

Hi there - I've got that information. It's specifically 1925 - 1944 I am trying to fill in. Thanks!

    There is a Richard Gray, a Plater at 1135 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow on the 1935 Valuation Rolls.
These only go up to 1935, and they give very little information.
