William Henry Keltie Russell was born in New Brunswick on July 16, 1862. His father was William Russell (who died in 1914).

“A life of much adventure ended today when Mr. William H.K. Russell of 1366 Harwood street was buried at Ocean View. He had been a resident of Vancouver for twenty-six years, but prior to that had spent twenty years at sea and had met adventure in many parts of the globe. He operated a cigar store here at 726 Hastings street west.

He was a man of rather remarkable attainments and numbered among his friends many of Vancouver’s leading citizens. Rev. J.S.

Mr. Russell, who leaves a wife and one son, had a fund of interesting experiences to draw upon. He belonged to an old and respected St. John, N.B. family and the call of the sea was in his blood.”

“Surrey Mirror – Friday 25 October 1940

Canadian Soldier Killed. Motor-Cycle Collision at Godstone.

A Canadian soldier’s death as the result of a collision at Godstone was investigated by the East Surrey Coroner (Dr. C. J. Baron), at Wallington Town Hall on Friday. The accident occurred in Blechingley-road on the morning of October 14th, and the victim was Sergeant Charles Drury, aged 35, who was riding a motor cycle which came into collision with a car driven by Wilfred Harris, chauffeur to a family at Dorking.

Lieutenant Gordon told the Coroner that at the time of the accident two lorries were going along the road from Blechingley to Godstone. A car proceeded to pass one of the vehicles when the motor cyclist came round a bend in the road. He turned towards the side of the road but there was a collision.

Private Hagg stated that he was driving a motor lorry at about twenty-five miles an hour. As he approached a bend in the road he saw the motor cyclist coming towards him. He appeared to manoeuvre towards the side of the road. The car was then abreast of witness’s lorry. The motor cyclist attempted to go from the side of the road to the centre towards the lorry and the car, and witness realised the difficulty the cyclist was in. He could not say why the cyclist should not have kept to the side of the road.

Private Bailey said he was sitting in the lorry driven by Hagg and saw the motor cyclist coming round the bend of the road. He seemed to turn out to the middle of the road, and was going at about twenty-five miles an hour. The car then came abreast of the lorry so that he could not see what happened as the motor cyclist passed at the same time.

Wilfred Harris stated that he was driving the car from Blechingley to Godstone. There were two lorries in front of him, and he had ample room to get in between them. They were going about twenty miles an hour. He satisfied himself that the road ahead was clear beyond the lorries. There was a bend at the end of the road but a sufficient straight length for him to go on. The first lorry was about 125 yards from the bend and he decided to pass it. He did so at about thirty miles an hour and was just pulling in between the two lorries when he saw the motor cyclist coming at great speed on his correct side. All of a sudden, continued witness, the motor cyclist wobbled and on righting himself he made a line as if to pass on his (witness’s) near side. When witness pulled in a bit the cyclist altered his course. Witness immediately pulled over his steering wheel and the car hit the bank. The cycle handlebars caught the car in the middle, scraped along the rear tyre, and struck the back wing. In reply to the Coroner, Mr. Harris said that if the motor cyclist had kept his machine straight there would have been room for him to pass, but he altered his course.

Dr. E. Ruston, County Pathologist, gave evidence that the cause of death was contusion of the brain, and said the cyclist must have fallen heavily. The Coroner returned a verdict of Accidental Death.”
