Boyle, Roberts, Helliwell Families

Hi: I am J Harleen Acton, my family is seeking information on the following people. Elizabeth and Florence Boyle, both sisters were born in Halifax, Yorkshire, West Riding, England. Elizabeth was born in 1871, died May 30, 1948 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, laid to rest in Christ Church Cemetery. Florence's birth date is unknown as well as her date of death and where she passed away. We are seeking information on who the Grandparents, Parents, and any other siblings are, birth, deaths, etc.... Elizabeth married 2 times, that we know. Her first marriage was to William Roberts, they had 5 children. There were twin sons, Charlie, and John killed in WW1, Joseph, Jane, Eliza. All born in England. Some immigrated to Canada and USA later on. We know that Mr. Roberts passed away, but are unsure when and where in England. Maybe Halifax, Yorkshire, West Riding but this would be guess at this point. The second marriage for Elizabeth was to John Farrer Helliwell. We have no information on Mr. Helliwell or his family, and are having trouble finding any thing on who his family are, Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, etc... Elizabeth and John did have a 1 child a son. His name is Frederick Jellicoe Helliwell according to his birth certificate. He was born on June 28, 1915, at Mill House Farm, Cadley, Fulwood, England. Elizabeth and Frederick immigrated to Kingston, Ontario, Canada(just the two of them). What complicates matters is that Frederick's surname changed to Roberts when they came to Canada, he was 5 years old at the time. Elizabeth as well reverted back to her former married name of Roberts. We don't know why/when the change of names happened. If anyone would have information on any of these family members it would be greatly appreciated.
