I am looking details for a George E.J. Handley, b 1872 and his wife Lilian B.M.E. (nee Rutledge)  b 1877 who emigrated from London England to Canada between 1903 and 1910.

Regards  ;D

The 1911 census is currently being indexed at various places, ie. www.automatedgenealogy.com, and is online at www.collectionscanada.ca, though without a name index (place index only).  So without a place-name you're not likely to get much luck.

Do you know where in Canada they moved to?

Hi Neil
Did they have any children in England before they left?

I found one Handley family on the 1911 census in Alberta, but the handwriting is very hard to read. Even the transcriber could not make it out. It shows a man and wife, names hard to read and 3 children, two boys and a girl all born in England. One of the boys is John born 1902 and the girl is Elizabeth born 1907. This was In Alberta, District of Macleod, in Frank .

Happy hunting
