Percy Vincent Fletcher 1896-1960 England and Canada

I've continued to review entries in my database systematically. As a result, I have additional information on Percy Vincent Fletcher.

Percy Vincent Fletcher (s/o Arthur Fletcher + Agnes Dodd)
DOB: 25 Jan 1896 Ashton Under Lyne, Lancashire, England
DOD: 12 Aug 1960 Canada (Most likely in Mississauga, Peel, Ontario)

DOM: Jun Q 1919 St. Paul, Stalybridge, Cheshire, England

Mabel Bradley (d/o Samuel Eli Bradley + Mary Jane Cooper)
DOB: 7 Apr 1895 Bollington, Cheshire, England
DOD: 1978 Canada (Most likely in Mississauga, Peel, Ontario)

Mississauga is in the metro area for Toronto, Canada and I'm currently looking for obituaries for both Percy and Mabel.

The only child that they had that I'm aware of at this point is:
Marjorie Fletcher
DOB: 1921 Stalybridge, Cheshire, England
DOD: Unknown
DOM: Unknown

Percy served in the British Navy. His first date of service is 12 Mar 1912 aboard the Ganges. His last date of service is 19 Feb 1920 aboard the Vivid I. His service number is J16251. He is listed as an Iron Fitter.

Percy emigrated to Canada aboard the Athenia, arriving in Canada on 4 Jul 1926. He was followed by Mabel and Marjorie aboard the Doric, leaving Liverpool, England on 16 Apr 1927. Ship's records show that the last address for the Fletcher family in England was 20 Chorlton Street, Openshaw, Lancashire, England.

Percy and Mabel settled in Canada and lived their lives out there. For the latter part of their lives, they lived at 514 Lakeshore E, Mississauga, Peel, Ontario, Canada.

Both Percy and Mabel are buried in Springcreek Cemetery, Mississauga, Peel, Ontario, Canada. Look for the following Find A Grave memorials: 13934899 and 13934904.
