Thanks Sandra,
good to get some more detail  - I'll cut/pastye that snippet into my notes.. (though Paul Webster actually survived and was interned with Charles as far as I know).

I've all the stuff about his parents (except the date of their marriage), grandparents etc, family in Ireland, and his internment here also.

I know very little about his marriage, why he died in B.C., why he was buried at sea ...

That's brilliant, Sandra.
You've nailed the elusive Toni.
I always felt she was probably the wife of Charles, and this proves it.

regards eadaoin.

edit: I've just found a marriage in Hammersmith in 1944 - looks as though she might be a widow.

I've finally sent off for this Marriage Cert - now that Sterling isn't so outrageously dear for us Euro users!
Thanks to all once again for the help.

Noticed on Toni's death cert that she was cremated.  This probably explains the "buried at sea".  Her ashes might well have been sprinkled on her favorite rose garden, but this is possibly illegal in Canada so therefore the euphemism.

For some reason the record and photo of the Brady family headstone on findagrave has been deleted.
