Hi,

There is a partial index to Woodland Cemetery, Page 47

Hill, Charles William 1883 -1966 husband Nella A. 1883-1968
https://londonmiddlesex.ogs.on.ca/docs/membpubs/cem-tr/londonc/152-1-Woodland-A-AE-Y-VETS-AandB-LandL.pdf

1958 Canada Voters List, 71 Stuart St. London, Middlesex East, Ontario
Hill, William, retired
Hill, Nella, housewife

1963/1965 Canada Voters List, same address
Hill, Charles, retired
Hill, Nella,

There is an obit. and death index for London and Middlesex County 1945-1950, 1967-2014
which misses Charles, but Nella is there
Hill, Nella Augusta (middle name), age 84, yr. of death 1968
https://londonmiddlesex.ogs.on.ca/obituaries1.php

As Sandra mentioned, the London Public Library has been excellent (and free) with quick look up obituaries, research request form here,

Hi,

A maybe...

Using just Nella Augustus * b. 1883 there is a possible.
Nella Augustus Swain, b. 16 April 1883, York, Ontario, father Albert Swain, mother Grace Ann Forth.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9Q97-Y3SH-CVJ?i=144&cc=1784212

She marries in 1911 to Harry Evans in York, Ontario
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9Q97-Y399-W28T?i=1037&cc=1784216

Harry dies in York, Ontario in 1925, Nella is the informant
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-6SLS-QBW?i=195&cc=1307826

I am not seeing a remarriage for Nella within the time frame of Ontario marriages 1869-1928,
1933-1935.

Wow thank you so much, so it looks like he remarried 1925-1953 and moved from Toronto to London.  I have just contacted London library for a possibly obituary but his marriage to Nella would prove it was him Also what happened to Hannah his first wife?  1910 until he joined up in 1916 when he states he was single (not widowed?)

I have just found the marriage to Nella and yes it is the correct Charles - 1929 in Toronto and he states he was a widower.  So Hannah Hill nee Owen born 1890 died 1910-1916 in Ontario.  The hunt goes on
