    Yes that certainly looks like them. I think we had better leave it there as they may still be alive.

    Hi,

    I was holding this back because I couldn't confirm it was husband
    Douglas Miles, but the children match up. Survived by sons S* and M*, daughter R*, brother R* (he was the best man in that engagement
    notice, reply #5) and sister M*
    b. Oct. 8, 1934 d. Dec. 3, 2011
    From the Vancouver Sun

    thanks so much for all that. today would have been my mother's birthday, she died the same year as Esther. She didn't know about what happened on the Canadian side after 1953, when Esther's father Ben, then 80+ came over for the coronation, and walked from where he was staying, in the suburbs, into London to see the procession.
    Esther was named after her grandmother, my gt grandmother.
