There were 3 children born to the couple according to the anc trees but all in the UK.  Maybe Florence never made the journey if that were the case.

Looks like the son Charles Edward Thomas - bachelor, printer,  married in York Ontario 24 December 1906 - Catherine Anne Turfts - spinster - (father Robert - mother Martha Fleming)
Parents Wm and Florence Haywood (as it was spelt)
Witnesses - Margarfet Turfts and Herbert john styles both of Toronto.

I found an article about the Railway on the Crowhill historical site, it states they had 2 children. It seems to be original reports.

I have this man who died in America, he was brought back to Wales to be buried on the "City of Rome"
 I`ve been trying to find any reports , but not finding US newspapers , or any other details that might help.
I`ve also been searching for him on passenger lists without any success.  His wife was Florence.

Can anyone help please.

Thanks, got it now. I wonder if there's a report on the funeral service, he wasn't  actually buried there but brought back to Wales.  From what I found it does seem there was one, but having not much luck.
