A son of theirs is on the www.archives.ca site enlisted in WWI:
Frank William Greatrex, resident 122 Hamilton St, Vancouver, born Kamloops, BC, next of kin mother, Alma Greatrex, resident Halifax Nova Scotia, born July 22 1899, a 'Mechanical Dentist', single, enlisted 4 July 1916, at Vancouver, BC. 5 foot 4 inches tall, brown eyes, auburn hair, religion Presbytarian.
He might have lied about his age in order to enlist, as on the BC archives he is registered July 22 1900, making him 15, just on the verge of 16, when he enlisted.
You could look at the 1901 census of Kamloops (18 pages, not name indexed) at www.archives.ca - would confirm parents ages, etc.
