Richard Gregory Croft Nichols
« on: Sunday 02 June 19 03:04 BST (UK) »
I would like a  copy of Richard Gregory Croft Nichols Death Certificate. he died 12 August Victoria British Columbia Canada.  Familysearch have his Death Record on their site but I am unable to view the original as it is unavailable. Canada BDM's -Death Certificates cannot be ordered over 100 years old.
Can anyone advise me if there is anywhere else I can obtain a copy of the original certificate.

Also I am having the same problem viewing Victoria British Columbia 1911 Census Original Records can anyone advise me where I could find these.

May I ask who says that death certs over 100 years are not available?

There is no mention of it that I could find.

"Death registrations are available from 1872 - 1996 or 20 years after the date of death" from

Canadian Passenger List shows the arrival of Ellen Nichols aged 50 years and Richard Nichols 84 years - Liverpool to Quebec - 3 July 1908 on the Empress of Britain.  Note on the manifest which is attached below.

Perhaps the age on the passenger list  for Ellen Nichols is not quite correct  - census shows 1843
Ellen was the (sister-in-law) wife of Richard's brother George H Nichols who passed away 1875.
Presume the son was Richard Grenside Nichols who passed away in Australia 1917. Daughter Edith Elizabeth Nichols Palmer also passed away in Australia 1947. Ellen E Nichols passed away in Hasting in 1925 so there must be a return passenger list for Ellen and a passenger list for her son Richard Nichols born  1871 going to Canada.

This must be the son of Ellen who had gone to British Columbia a few years earlier.

Canadian Passenger Lists Rich G Nichols born about 1871 - Liverpool to Montreal Quebec - arriving 15 July 1905 on the Virginian.
