I am seeking information about Ernest Edward Billinghurst born 14 March 1865 in Lewisham, Kent and died 7 October 1931 in Vancouver British Columbia Canada.

Ernest married Laura Purvis – date not found yet.

There is an obituary in the `Vancouver Sun´ dated 22 October 1931 on the Heritage website which I cannot read.

Any more information about this family in Canada would be welcome.

From the Canada Archives online:
1921 Census  EEB b 1888 England living Esquimalt , Nanaimo district BC Finance agent
Also      Laura age 45 b Java 1890, parents both born England
            Laura age 19 b BC
            Dorothy  age 11 b BC
Ancestry has deaths for EEB and Laura 1961 but I do not have a subscription to the Canada site so only know it was in BC. Also a marriage for Laura ? assume daughter to Reginald F Kaltenbach.

I got the 1901 Census at ancestry because I am lazy, but it should be on the Archives of Canada site also.

ancestry only had an index reference to his death, which was the same date and place you already have.
