Dora and Albert Hulme
At the time of the 1921 Canadian Census, Albert is found as a boarder in the home of Dora's maternal aunt, Joanna (Longworth) Blackledge as a boarder. It is unknown whether this arrangement was made because of their pending marriage, or if Dora and Albert were introduced as a result of Albert's relationship with her aunt and uncle.

At the time of the marriage, Albert's occupation was listed as a dairy worker and Dora was a cotton operator and they were both living in Dora's parent's home at 299 Grosvenor Avenue North. The wedding was witnessed by Dora's sister and brother-in-law, Lily and Arthur Moore (and presumably, given the relationship with her aunt, Joanna, Hugh and family also attended).
