Is it just me, or is it of interest that there's a ten-year gap between the two groups of children?  Was Fred absent during the war or was the whole family elsewhere between 1911 and 1921, so that they don't show up on the census?

1910/1911 Montreal Directory -- Frederic Harding, clerk, 327 Drolet
1911/1912 -- Frederic Harding, clerk, 327 Drolet
1912/1913 -- F M Harding, clerk, MLH&P Co., Birnham Av. Park Av. extension
1913/1914 -- F Harding, clerk, MLH&P Co., Verville

1914/1915 -- three possibilities:
F. Harding, clerk, MLH&P Co., 3805 Verville
Fred Harding, supt., 252 Guy
Frederick Harding, clerk, Birnham Av. Park Av. extension

Hi again...

You can also use the directories (the street index sections) to get a list of neighbours .  Perhaps you could search for some of these neighbours on the census records.  Hopefully they will show up and lead you to your relatives.  This would save you a lot of page by page searching :) :)

1921 - Found District 169 - sub district 35  - 21 pages - some mentions of Burman Street but it was all a jumble of addresses ?  No Hardings under 3310 or any where on those 21 pages.

Hi,

1911 census... I can see the even numbered houses on Drolet at Maisonneuve District, Subdistrict 62.  The odd numbers must be close by!!  Narrowing it down..... ;D ;D  (I looked for James Easton... who I can see from the City Directory is at 306 Drolet.)

Oh no!!!  Just found 327 Drolet (using neighbor Israel Pichette... in an odd numbered address).  It is not the Hardings!!!!   The other neighbours are right - Carons in 329 and Forests in 325.  327 is occupied by a McCrasey family. 

Perhaps your Hardings were elsewhere in 1911 .. maybe rented out their home in Montreal??

Ralph's baptism in June 1911 gives their address as 999 City Hall Avenue in Montreal.  This would now be Avenue Hotel-de-Ville.

Wow I am overwhelmed by everyone's help, thank you thank you so much.  I'm going to go through all the messages and see if I can find anything.

Yes there seems to have been a 10 year gap in the children which I thought was strange.  A good reason of why I was trying to find the census is to see what my great grandfather had entered as to where his parents were from and what year he immigrated.  My understanding is he immigrated from England and the my mother mentioned the other day, she heard he came here as an orphan worker, but not sure of that story.   Maybe not an orphan, possibly his parents sent him over to work, not sure, I just can't seem to get past beyond him.  ???
