The bridal photo has Gladys's sister on it - not sure who. She looks younger/not as tall. Could that be a clue?

Hi,

There is an obituary for Austin in the Welland Tribune Newspaper, page 16, 06/07/1953.
You can try contacting the Welland Library for a copy.

Awesome find, Dbree!

But look how the newspaper index lists him !

1.  Austin, c. (Jack) Ayre,  Welland, Welland Tribune, page 7, 08/07/1953,  F.
2.  Austin, Cyril Ayre,  Welland, Welland Tribune, page 16, 06/07/1952,  D.
3.  Austin, Cyril Ayre,  Welland, Welland Tribune, page 16, 06/07/1953,  D.


Does this mean he rearranged his name, so instead of Austin Cyril Ayre, he became Cyril Ayre Austin?

What a find  :D

So are we looking for Austin or Ayre - and does the Jack refer to him or his brother or was it a family nick name ?
