I am trying to trace the family of Thomas and Martha Gaskell and their children Hilda, Leonard, Marion and Bernard who emigrated from Wigan,Lancashire for work at Mountain Park Alberta in 1923. I believe Thomas and Martha died in Vancouver.I would like to find out more about their life in Canada. My father in law is Thomas' nephew and would love to catch up with the family

The Master Index of the AGS cemetery burials list some 15 GASKELL names, but none that fit your query.

Look for BC Archives

Dear Sir or Madam;
My Grandfather was Thomas Gaskell who indeed lived for a time in Mountain Park. My father was Bernard Gaskell. Grandma Gaskell died in Victoria, B.C. add Grandpa died at Cobble Hill, B.C.. They are both buried there. I would like to find out more of any family in England. Please reply to audreygaskell12@gmail.com. It has been a very nice surprise to make contact with family in England.
Yours truly,
Audrey Gaskell
