Thank you Kathleen. I hope some of this info will help someone in the Burdis family with their research. I did find the 1911 census. I also found death registrations for William and Sarah: Name:William David Burdis
Familysearch shows marriage records for two daughters...of William D Burdis and Sarah Bell. Both daughters were born in England: Minnie born 1883, married in British Columbia to Trevor Wilkinson; Eva born 1889, married in Vancouver BC to Charles Cleveland Carter Sept. 30, 1913. Both daughters were born in Newton-Willows, England. (Or Newton Le Willows, England).
Found one reference to William D. Burdis in 1917 as the Secretary of the BC Canners Association.
So, there's quite a bit of info for anyone interested in this family!
