Hi Nigel,

You've been busy!

In Harry's 1918 death notice, it states his wife resides at 302 Sixteenth St NW. Other members of Ethel's family lived at this address over the years.

1918 - Harry SEFTON at 302, see bottom right.

1920 - Samuel COCKER at 302, Maurice COCKER at 306.

1920 - Ethel also at 302.

1930 - Walter AXELBY at 302 (see also article below).

If you want to drive yourself nuts, the first section of the Henderson Directories are by street (and Calgary streets are maddening, eg 14th Ave NW, 14th St SW).

The next section is by surname and often gives the occupation. (CPR is Canadian Pacific Railroad, CNR is Canadian National Railroad). You should be able to search COCKER and AXELBY, but because of the OCR, SEFTON does not show up.

I would like to see your research, thank you for the offer; I will send you an email.
