If this picture could be converted to colour to fit a 6x4 inch frame I would be delighted.
George Rowles was born in Norwich in 1902 and died in 1967.
He served in the Royal Engineers in WW2.

The obituary notice states that Hazel May Rowles nee Mallory died before Robert William.
Can anyone find this date for me? or can find out where she was buried.
All help is wonderful and very much appreciated.

Sorry folks.
I have posted information about Robert William and Hazel in the section.
It must be my age. Please ignore this error.

Attached is the newspaper entry from the Ottawa Citizen for 7th August 1948.

It reads: R. W. Rowles, 69, Dies in Hospital.
A native of England Robert William Rowles died Thursday in a local hospital following a long illness. He was in his 70th year [Not correct].
Mr Rowles was born in London England and came to Canada in 1918. [Should read 1914].
His wife, the former Hazel Mallory predeceased him some time ago.
Surviving are two sons, William of Hamilton and Charles of Ottawa; two daughters Mrs Scully DeLuccia, Patterson, NJ. Mrs Desmond Vurrows Smiths Falls and five grandchildren.
Rev. T. E. Downey will conduct funeral services in the bHulse and Platfair funeral chapel, 315 McLeod Street, this afternoon at three o'clock. Burial will be made in Beechwood Cemetery. [I have a picture of the headstone].

Robert William Rowles was born on Tuesday, 10th May 1892 at No. 1, Cooks Court, Cross Street, Chatham, Medway, Kent, England, the son of Robert and Rebecca Rowles (née Rice), a ‘Labourer’.

He enlisted in the Canadian Over-Sea Expeditionary Force on 30th December 1915 at Ottawa.

He married Hazel May Mallory on 21st March 1916 at Bellville, Hastings County, Ontario.
I thought they had at 1 daughter, Gladys born 1918, whose married name was “Burroughs’, and 1 son, Charles born 1920 as found in the 19212 census.

I have since found out via an obituary for Robert that they had more children.
Can anyone help Identify them please

He died on Thursday, 5th August 1948, age 56, at Ottawa, as a result of ‘Haemorrhage of Gastric Ulcers’. He was buried on 7th August 1948 at Beechwood Cemetery, Ontario by Rev. T. E. Downey.
Section 27 (Veterans), Range C, Grave 11.

Well done Arthurk.
This confirms my suspicions that Benjamin and Anthony came from the Gloucestershire area.
They obviously still had connections there.
It's another step forward, thank you.
