I'm trying to find a Stanley Bigland. He was killed (lost at sea) in 1914 on board the Empress of Ireland. On the passenger list he was shown as being from Toronto. I know who is parents are but don't know how old he was when he died or when he was born. I'm guessing he was probably born over there or Stanley was his middle name. Anyone any ideas where i can go from this? Thanks
