Any information please on HENRY IRVING LOVEDAY - CANADA.

Query by marshall155

I am hoping that someone out there can help me with filling in details on HENRY IRVING LOVEDAY who emigrated to Canada from the UK in 1908 with his wife Beatrice Annie (Cole) and their daughter Sybil Beatrice, b: 1904/5.

Henry Irving was born on 23 Oct 1878 at West Derby, Liverpool and baptised on 14 Oct 1880 at Bloomsbury St George. He and Beatrice were married on 25 Feb 1902 in Peckham, Surrey.

He was the son of Henry Joseph LOVEDAY who was a life long friend and Stage Manager to Sir Henry Irving the Shakespearian actor and was named after the actor.

In particular I am keen to find his date of death and where he is buried. When he left the UK he had been working as a Stage Manager and had possibly done some acting.

He and Beatrice had three further children born in Canada (possibly more), they were Harry b:1910, John b: 1913 and Ilene b:1916.

Thank you

Hi: Henry Irving Loveday enlisted with the 101st Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force on February 02, 1916. He was assigned to B Company, 8th Platoon. Shortly after arriving overseas in July 1916 he was found to have chronic asthma and classified as fit only for base duty, not for general service. He remained in England with the 17th Reserve Battalion and later the Nova Scotia Regimental Depot. Post war he returned to Winnipeg, discharged on May 09, 1919. He and his wife remained in Winnipeg. Beatrice Ann (Cole) Loveday died on July 11, 1942 and is buried at Brookside Cemetery, Winnipeg. Shortly after that, Henry moved to Airdrie, Alberta, just north of Calgary, where he retired. He died at Colonel Belcher Hospital in Calgary on November 12, 1961, and is buried at Burnsland Cemetery, Calgary. I sent you a private message with contact infomation. Feel free to contact me for more details. Cheers, Jayelbee, Winnipeg
