Thanks again Stella, you're great!

In James' death notice in BC Death Index, Essondale is listed as the place of death. Do you know, would Essondale be referring to the Hospital at Essondale or is there an actual place name of Essondale. I understand the hospital - Essondale is in Coquitlam.

Cheers, Gloria

Essondale refers to the hospital in Coquitlam. I can check the death certificate on Monday to see what information it gives. To see how long he was there etc.

The addressee -may have changed - this is old information

Port Coquitlam, BC B3C 4J2
Riverview Hospital
2601 Lougheed Highway

You may, under the Freedom of Information Act, be able to get a copy of the relative's record from Riverview Hospital.

* The records may have been transferred to the Provincial Archive - Riverview can help - with file numbers etc.
An amazing amount of information is available - more than well worth the small fee
