I am in the UK. My Grandads brother, Horace Joseph Pendray born 1879, died in 1961 in Vancouver area. He was born in Tamworth in the UK. Wifes name possibly Ada, children Harvey and Maude and a third boy, name not known. I can not find any immigration records and am not sure when he arrived, he married in 1907 in UK, and maybe left before world war 1 started? Any suggestions?

Thank you for such a quick response. I do have this information but have hit a brick wall with regards to the next step. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, From the Govt of B.C. Vital Events Index:

The information that had been sent - is an index to the actual death Registration.

Name:Horace Joseph Pendray Age:82 Event:Death

Reg. Number:1961-09-009368
Microfilm #:B13252 (GSU # 2033373)

The Death Registration will show:
Time In Municipality,Province,Canada.
Place of Death. Name and Address.
Date and Place of birth.
Sex.Citizenship.Race. Marital Status. Name of Spouse
Occupation.Industry,Time at Occupation. Last worked.
Names of parents including mothers maiden name.
Place of birth of parents.
Name and Address of Informant. Relationship to deceased.
Date of Death. Cause of Death. Burial or Cremation.

Most of the above information depends on the Knowledge of the informant.

The filmed registration can be viewed at no cost. Transcribed - or copied [for the copy machine charges .50 cents Cndn or less]

Unfortunately I cannot help at this time - suffering through a cold/flu - caught during Christmas.

There are Volunteers at Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness - British Columbia -
ANY who offer Lookup of Public Record - can transcribe - or copy the information found.
Some may offer Search for Obituary. Others offer Cemetery Photo.

Searching the Automated Genealogy Census 1911 Canada -British Columbia - does not show Horace.

In the early 1940's we had the National Registration of All Canadians over the age of 16 years.
This information is available -for $48.15.

Thank you. I think I understand. I have made a donation and asked someone on the kindness site to see the extra information. My mom is ill and is really excited that we have evidence that family hearsay might be true. x
