Looks like William Coldham left Liverpool for Canada on 16/4/1903 although cannot see when future wife Marion Elizabeth Walkden left the UK.

She was born in Ashwell, Hertfordshire and must have gone to Canada between 1911-1914.   She hadn't been married before.

I wonder if they'd first met in London (where they both were in 1901) or whether they'd met once she got to Canada.

Marriage record -

Marion was still in England for the 1911 -

Therefore Marion would have emigrated between 1911 and 1914

No wonder I didn't find her (I only checked outgoing lists) - they have her age as 23 (bc.1889) and I was looking for someone bc.1878!
