My Grandfather Rees Jones was born May 1878 in Stockton, Durham in the north-east of England. In 1902 he joined the Royal Engineers & served 8yrs with colours incl 5 yrs in Gibraltar. On 22 Aug 1911 he arrives in Halifax, Nova Scotia on the Carthaginian.He is a bricklayer. I believe he goes to Canada to complete his Reserve Service. Aug 1915 he enlists in the CEF in Halifax joining the 64th Bat then the No1 Tunnelling Co serving in France during 1916.I have his service records from Canada but there is no info regarding his time in Canada pre 1915-all its says is that he was given permission to do reserve training with 1st Can Home Guards Artillery.I wld like to know more abt what he did & where he lived between 1911 and 1915.He wld not have been in the Canadian 1911 Census as he was still in England until Aug 1911 but I was wondering whether there are any other records/docs?? He marries my grandmother in England Feb 1916 so obviously he must have kept strong links with his homeland!! Hope someone can help or point me in the right direction! Many thanks.
