« on: Thursday 12 July 18 20:19 BST (UK) »
hi everyone,

                looking for help and information on the family of William Reid from Belfast
                William Alfred Robert Reid was born in Cawnpore, India in 1869. 

                he married Margaret Ballance in Belfast 24 December 1903, son James Cecil
                was born June 1905.  William was discharged from the army October 1905.
                 Sgt Reid, 4676.  Royal Irish Rifles.  believe he died c1909.

                all that I can find on the short time spend in Canada, is when Margaret returns
                a widow with a family of three young children.
                sailed from Montrťal, Quebec. returned to  Glasgow on the SS Ionian. 12 June 1910.

                Harold born Canada, c1907 and Vera born Canada, c1910.
                 Vera is down age 1, Belfast 1911 census.

                James Cecil died 21 January 1971, Roselawn Cemetery, Belfast.
                they are living in Belfast in the 1911 census with Margaretís father.
                if anyone could help me with anything, thank you very much.

                     Billy.
