Richard Taylor's Notes

I have just come from walking my dog in the Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver, B. C. While there I located the gravestone of Alfred Charles Baldry. Alfred was the father of my uncle, Harry Baldry. He was a decorated soldier from the 1914-1918 war. He died from the Spanish Influenza in 1920, after returning from the war. My uncle Harry was married to Leola Taylor, my father's sister.

They have both passed away now and, as a result I am in possession of portraits of Charles Alfred and his wife Ada Stichbury, as well as some of his war memorabilia (including a scroll from the King). I also have a box full of photographs that are from both England and Canada. I am not able to identify the photos, so I am not really sure if they are of her Stichbury family or of the Baldry family.

Alfred Charles Baldry died January 7, 1920. The age in the provincial death record is 39. His age on the tombstone is 41. The age from your webpage information calculates to 42. Alfred's wife, Ada Emily Stichbury, died August 9, 1969, in Vancouver.

There was a death of a George Frederick Baldry on April 29, 1920 in Vancouver. He is also buried in the Mountain View Cemetery.

My uncle Harry's birth was March 10, 1911 (in Nanaimo, B. C.). He died June 12, 1994. (in Vancouver). His wife, Leola Taylor, was born on November 25, 1910 (Vancouver) and died April 12, 2004 in Vancouver.

Harry's brother, Charles Alfred Baldry, born in 1913 (Nanaimo?), died on April 11, 1988 in Vancouver. His wife, Ethel died in 2002, I believe (Vancouver). They had three children, Carol, Ted and Gary. Gary still lives in the family home in Vancouver.
