So-born 1887 Dumfries. Mother is Margaret not Mary.

Fairly easy to find on the 1891 and 1901 census.

Maureen

Thank you for correcting her name.

This could very well be the family, so James would have been 25 years old when he died in 1916.  My G Uncle lived at 35 English Street, Dumfries and born there in 1881.

Is this the death you have Canada War Graves
James Glover Service Number 28625 16th Battalion
Religion Roman Catholic
Previously reported wounded and missing
9/10/16

That is the date I have for James's death - hadn't seen it on the Canada War Graves.

Thank you so much for that.

Think this might be his immigration record
James Glover age 24 born about 1888
Occupation Joiner
Departure Glasgow Scotland
Arrival Halifax Canada
1 April 1912
Ship Scandinavian

Possibility this chap maybe in England 1911 census

Rosie

Yes, it does seem be his immigration record . The age is correct and he was a joiner. He would probably have sailed from Glasgow.

Not sure about the England 1911 census.
