I know you have the record, but I didn't know if you had just the indexed entry from ancestry or this .

I see from you other posts there were two sons Montgomery Ernest born about 1932 and Ralph born in the 1940's.
Are you hoping to find them mentioned in the obit for Charles or are you hoping to find Charles parents?There are some passenger lists for Charles - one in 1932 - returning to Canada from Britain shows his father as William Muir,4 Third Terrace, Radnor Park, Dumbartonshire Wife Gladys Muir c/o Ernest Bourdon, Hemmingford, Quebec
1930 Canada passenger list again shows his father as William Muir, same address as in 1932
1901 is the latest available census for Scotland so too early to have Charles but I looked for his father in 1901 but there are too many men of that name.
Quebec Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 about Marie Charles Montgomery Name: Marie Charles Montgomery Spouse: Mary Gladys Marcella Bourdon Event Year: 1931 Event: Mariage (Marriage) Religion: Catholique Place of Worship or Institution: Hemmingford (St-Romain) Province: Québec (
June 24, 1931 after dispensing with banns, marriage of Montgomery Charles Muir of Hemmingford, son of age of William Muir, sewing machine factory worker from Glasgow and of late Elizabeth Bryson also of Glasgow, Scotland on the first part, Presbyterian and baptized, and Mary Gladys Marcella Bourdon of this Parish, major daughter of Ernest Bourdon, agent de care and Mary Ann Laronde also of this Parish on the other part. In the presence of Ernest Boudon, father of the spouse and Joseph Fournier, friend of the spouse.
********************* so again I went back to 1901 to look for William with wife Elizabeth - in case they were married by then but no luck there either. The closest I found to a sewing machine worker was a riveter.
Since he died in Surrey, B.C. I think your best bet for the obit would be the Vancouver Sun which is the biggest newspaper in the area. They may be able to look in their archives for you.
If you are looking for Charles parents - with their names you could probably find their marriage on scotlandspeople and Charles birth also.
