*COMPLETED* Death in Toronto 1952
« on: Monday 08 September 14 19:43 BST (UK) »
Following on from this

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=697574.0

Have now found the son, but their stay in Canada was short-lived as father died in Toronto 1952 and they returned to England. As a five yr old he doesn't remember much.

I've discovered that Ontario records are closed for 72 years so I'm still 10 years away from  finding him in a death index.

Are there any obvious cemeteries an ex-pat family would have used or can you suggest any sites for searching.

I've tried findagrave and billiongraves but nothing.

Thanks

Dawn

Hi Carole

Thanks for that, I might just send them an email overnight just to see if there's anything.
