    3. Hi Dennice and Joyce Thanks for taking the time to reply. Also thank you Dennice for the links to the death registrations. I looked at a couple of other provinces afterwards but they don't have the wonderful service that BC does. I will write to the 3 Warfords on Vancouver Island from the phone number link as well. Thanks again.
