Perhaps they married later than 1920 and somewhere else;  there is a death registration for a Gladys Marion Rutledge (aged 59) in British Columbia in 1963.

Using info from FaG, the 1921 census has him unmarried, aged 18, machinist living with father and step-mother

59 Peter Street, Toronto South.

So married between June 1921 and birth of first child in 1923.

Hi Sandy

Do you have any other information about Gladys? Parents' names. Where was she born?

The death registration in BC for Gladys Marion Rutledge shows her maiden name to be Compton.

A possible death registration for Gordon (looks like he remarried if it's the right one) is shown here:

The Find a Grave Ref I gave above has full details of both Gordon and Gladys, their parents, siblings and children. Accounts are written by their granddaughter, who knew them both:

also this on Find A Grave:

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/21087141

It's more of a family tree with narrative than the usual Find a Grave entry.

An interesting  marriage on 2 November 1820, St Johns, Toronto  of a Gladys Compton, aged 18, born Ripon, England to an Austin Cyril Ayre. Father given as Charles Compton.


This info fits with the information on Find a Grave and  UK Birth and census info.

Could Austin have died and Gladys married as Gladys Ayre  :-\

? possible entry on the 1921 in Simcoe East.  Entered as Gladys Hare  :-\
