You haven't given his parents' names , but is this the right one ?

My mistake - you have

Francis James of the City of Montreal , blacksmith , son of the late Isaac James and Annie Price his wife ,
and Elsie Fish , spinster of the same place, daughter of the late William Henry Fish and of Sarah Oakes his wife.

1920 Saint Andrews Anglican Church , Montreal.

I cannot see an actual date , other than 1920 , in the written record.

Jack James 1920 Quebec , fils ( son )
625 Joliette, Hochelaga Ward , Montreal

Hi,

Frank's WW1 service file is available to view. Click on PDF for full file, it is very slow to load.
It gives his death as 31-5-1943.
http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/personnel-records/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=482750

From the Montreal Gazette newspaper, June 2, 1943 page 14
James, Frank of 7261 Wiseman Ave., beloved husband of Elsie Fish, father of sons J* and R* (both serving RCNVR) No mention of other children.

Champ d'Honneur National Cemetery, Montreal
GNR Frank James 1891-1943, Can. Field Art'y CEF

Frank's WW1 Death Card, his date of death is incorrect, page 427

Do we know the names of the other two children ?

Did Elsie have any middle name ?
