Hi Patricia,
Lennie was born in Yorkshire/Derbyshire England.
Daughter of Thomas and Sarah GREAVES.
You know that she passed away in Vancouver B.C. in 1968.
Is Lennie - her proper name ?
Searching the Provincial Archive of British Columbia Vital Events Index:
Marriage 1858-1930 -Birth: 1872-1903 -Death: 1872 - 1985.
Name:
Lennie Brailsford GREAVES.Age:89 Event:Death
Date:1968 3 9 (Yr/Mo/Day) PlaceWest Vancouver
Reg. Number:1968-09-003908

I can take a look at the filmed Death Registration - transcribe if you wish - will also search for an obituary;
The registration may show:
Time in municipality. time in Province. Time in Canada [gives you an aprox timeframe to search entry]
Place of Death. Name. Residence. Sex.Citizenship. Race.
Marital Status. Date and Place of birth. Name of spouse.
names of parents incuding mothers maiden name, place of birth of parents [depends on knowledge of informant]
occupation. industry. time at occ. last worked.
Name and Address of Informant- relationship to deceaed.
Date of Death. Cause of Death. Name and address of Undertaker. Date of Burial or Cremation. Name and address of Cemetery. Name and address of Physician.
* There are 4 BRAILSFORD deaths in B.C.1935 -1984.
Marriage of Helen BRAILSFORD -Augustus George Ferguson - 1915 - Vancouver. perhaps a family connection?
Searched National Archive of Canada - Immigration 1925 - 1935 - for GREAVES,Lennie - 0 results
there are 4 BRAILSFORD 1925 - 1926 1928 - 1929.
Cheers, Stella

I know this might mean nothing to your search but I went to the Free BMD and found her

Greaves Lennie Brailsforth Ecclesall Bierlow 9c 322a

Note the spelling of her middle name

Yes got her birth thanks and we thave her mother as brailsforth, but she later signed her name as brailsford. These ancestors do make things difficult for us. It's her marriages and her life in Canada we're after though.

Yes on census as Lennie and signed as witness for her sister's marriage as Lennie Brailsford Greaves, although the birth record and her mother's maiden name are Brailsforth. The must have gone to Canada early 1900's. Lennie, her brother (Henry Alfred greaves b 1876) and parents and her sister May Elizabeth Wilson (with husband Thomas Holy Wilson and daughter Mabel May. Though possibly not all at the same time. We know Lennie married and had daughter Margaret, but we don't know when or where. We know she died in Vancouver in 1968, but don't even know what her surname was at the time. I don't have access to Canadian info at the moment, so any help is gratefully accepted.

I can take a look at the registration- when I am next in town - perhaps tomorrow - everything always depends on family/friends - deliveries etc.

HHi Again Patricia,
Forgot to mention that I will also take a look for an obituary. this may mention - and family members etc
The Death registration will show the marital status - as well - the name and address of the informant - and relationship to the deceased.
Cheers, Stella
