I looked for a marriage and found this

1905 Kensington
John McDonald and Mary Dorette S F McDonald are on the same page.
That rang a bell  :)

This is a very long thread concerning that family.

Hello

I've only just noticed this thread.

Most of the information RickyJack is looking for is already to be found somewhere on RootsChat, but to summarise the McDonald family:

Flora McDonald (nee McDonald) married John McDonald in Kensington in 1905. They had 6 children the first of whom died in infancy.
The remaining 5 were Eustace James - Eust, Edmund George -Baldo, Enid Flora Sophie - Sis, Ronald Edward - Ron and Bernard Henry - Tim (my father). I met all of them except Flora (and the dead child of course)

Here's an Obit of John McDonald - hope this helps.
