Here is another query I have received ……
My great grandmother went to Montreal Canada in 1927 and apparently died there while visiting her daughter Grace Carruthers Tomson who belonged to the Salvation Army.
GRACE COPLAND CARRUTHERS
1861 Born in Liverpool England
died in Montreal Canada I think in 1927
Thank you for your query. I have found Grace Carruthers sailing on the Minnedosa from Liverpool in 1927 bound for Canada. The passenger lists tells us that her daughter paid for Grace’s fare and that she intended staying at her son in law’s house. Mr R Thomson, 1475 Blaney Street, Montreal, P.Q. Her next of kin in the UK was her husband Alex Carruthers, 91 Peel Road, Bootle, Liverpool.
Looking at the incoming passenger lists it doesn’t look as if Grace returned to England. The death indexes for Quebec after 1900 are only available in the GRO Office Quebec and do not seem to be online. A Google search for cemetery records for Montreal did not produce any reference to Grace.
Perhaps a letter to the Salvation Army in Montreal might bring to light a record of Grace’s death and burial.
