Essondale isn't a city, it was an institution. Its located in Coquitlam, but I don't believe its there anymore. The records from essondale can be quite valuable when doing genealogy research and you can obtain from the BC Archives. You can contact them at
www.bcarchives.gov.bc.ca

Hope that helps. My g=grandfather died there too, and the information in the records were extremely helpful.
