Thank you for your help. There may well have been 2 marriages. The matter is slightly confused in that there is 2 Roderick George Sallaways, one born 1853 and his son with the same name born 1890. We currently believe it was Roderick senior who married both Andrina Henderson in 1911 and also Alexandra Matilda Bulmer nee Parkinson in about 1914. It is this second marriage we are attempting to prove.

While this below transcribed marriage from the Drouin parish record collection is not the one you seek, it should help sort out a few names and possibly a parish church for the c1914 marriage:
Montréal (Presbyterian First Church) 1919 Folio 22
Charles Campbell Tennent, of Montreal, Manager, and a bachelor son of Thomas Tennent and of his wife Isabella Campbell of Glasgow, Scotland, and Martha Parkinson Bulmer, also of Montreal, spinster, daughter of the late John Bulmer and of his wife Adelaide Matilda Parkinson of Seaforth, England, were united in marriage by me on this eighth day of July, in the year of our Lord one thousand and nine hundred and nineteen under authority of licence and in the presence of the undersigned.
Malcolm A Campbell, Minister
Chas C Tennent
Martha Parkinson Bulmer

Roderick Salloway came to Canada in 1882
It looks like he married Ellen Rachel Loeker daughter of William on December 16 1885 Montreal.
I have found 2 different address's for him as I checked the WW1 records and found his son R.G. Salloway.
Not sure if you had this info or not but hear it is.
Roderick G. Salloway Born 30 June, 1890 Montreal, Quebec
Attested - 1 Septmber, 1915 Calagery, Alberta
CEF - #435672
Next of kin - Father Roderick Salloway 1249 Messier St. Montreal Quebec
R.G. Salloway was reattested on October 17, 1917 Calgary, Alberta
Same service #
Next of kin - Father Roderick Salloway 1243 Dllmorimier Ave. Montreal, Quebec
Can I ask where you came up with the name Adeline Matilda Bulmer-Parkinson??

I would have to suggest Collin, that Susan is correct...........and we can assume the second marriage was to Andria Henderson.

Also........ it seems this Martha Parkinson Bulmer was born 1893 West Derby..
father- John Bulmer, born 1853 Cambridgeshire
mother - Adelaide M Bulmer born 1860 Cam.
The marriage seems to be
John Bulmer and Adelaide Matilda Bradbury June 1889 Salford, Lancashire.

Thanks for the help & obversations given.
Can I confirm I am looking for Adelaide Matilda Bulmer nee Parkinson and not the variations I may have given in this tread. I had minimised the information I originally supplied so as not to confuse the issue and stray away from the enquiry.
Adelaide Matilda Parkinson is the sister of my greatGrandmother and was born 8 May 1859 in Hauxton near Cambridge (on her birth certificate it gives christen names the other way around but appears as Adelaide on census, certificates etc..). Adelaide married Joseph Bradbury on 27 March 1881 at Hulme Lancashire, Joseph died 25 March 1887 at Salford. Adelaide married John Bulmer 8 June 1889 at Salford, John died 16 April 1910 at Seaforth Lancs.
Adelaide & John had the following children, William John b 1890, Archie b 1891, Martha Parkinson b 1893, Florence b 1894, John Harold b 1897 and Cecil b 1898 but died 1905.
In the 1911 census Adelaide, by then a widow, appears with the family in Seaforth near Liverpool. Shortly after 1911 Adelaide and the family came over to Montreal (as did Adelaide's sister Alexandra Halliday & family).
Canadian attestation papers for Adelaide's son Archie Bulmer 13 Oct 1914 shows next of kin, mother, Mrs A Sallaway - hence my search for Adelaide marrying a Sallaway sometime between 1911 and 1914. I cannot find a marriage in the UK therefore assume it is in Montreal or elsewhere in Canada.
Why assume she married Roderick George Sallaway, senior or junior? In Lovells Directory for Montreal 1919-20 her probable sons Archie and William Bulmer are shown seperately on the name index as living at 1243 Delorimer Avenue. As Ann has pointed out on R G Salloways reattested papers 17 Oct 1917 next of kin is father Roderick Salloway at 1243 Delorimer Avenue. Same address but 2 or 3 years earlier. In Lovells 1922-23 there is Mrs Adelaide Salloway wid Jos 525 Delorimer Avenue and in 1923-24 Mrs Adelaide Salloway wid Geo 1440 Chabot.
From a recent contact they have a source saying Roderick G SAlloway married Adelaide Matilda Parkman (I presume Parkinson) widow of Bulmer, 1914, Delorimier Montreal. I have recently enquired for confirmation of this information & source and await a reply.
So, it seemed sensible to throw this question into this forum pot in the hope that those with a better grasp of Canadian genealogy may be able to confirm or give some pointers.
I have looked in the Drouin Collection and the marriages of Adelaide's children all seem to be there (except William John who married Edith Rogers in 1915 in England). Also, it looks from Boarder Crossing details as if many of the family moved to Wayne county Detroit Michigan in the 1920's. As Adele pointed out Adelaide's daughter Martha Parkinson Bulmer married Charles Campbell Tennent in 1919 in Montreal, their family appear in the 1930 census for Wayne Detroit and with them is Adelaide M Selloway (Ancestors.com transcription) Mother, aged 70.
So I am reasonable assured that Adelaide Matilda Bulmer, nee Parkinson married a Salloway 1911 - 1914 in Canada and possibly believe it was Roderick George Salloway in 1914 in Montreal. Her husband ? Salloway would have died pre-1922.
Hope this information is interesting to those looking at this thread and clarifies any confusion my original enquiry may have caused.
Thanks again for the help given so far.

The marriage is in the Methodist Church records, Delorimier, Montreal.
It looks like they were married 30 July 1914 but the record is very difficult to read which is probably why it has not been indexed. Their signatures are clear though.
If you have access to the Drouin collection and go to the records under M for Montreal you'll find "Montréal (Methodist Dlelorimier)." In the year 1914 the marriage is on the right hand side of page 19 (out of 39 pages).
If you don't have access I'd be happy to email you the image.

Many thanks BeeJay, a good find. As you say the copy isn't clear but the signatures including Adelaide's daughter Martha P Bulmer helps.
Now learnt there is a very nice death notice for Roderick G Salloway in 1920, on the Drouin collection search for Sallway, burial 1920 and it should be the top option. Wifes name is as expected, Adelaide Parkinson and the witnesses/informants are her son Archie Bulmer and his wife to be Norma Robertson.
Appreciate your help.
