Help with finding John Jerrett bc1890,d1966 (Toronto?).
« on: Thursday 15 January 15 14:57 GMT (UK) »
Please can anyone help me to find information on John Jerrett d1966, who was possibly born about 1890?

He was married to Alice dc1967 and they had a trucking business up until around 1939, when they sold it and their home to help their son Jack with his funeral business (Jerrett Funeral Homes) in Toronto.   Jack b1916-d1967.

I am wondering if John's family came from Newfoundland, where there were many Jerretts descended from the Jerretts in Devon and later Liverpool, England.
