Cox married Frances Mary Oakes in New Westminster on July 8, 1914.
Cox exhibited his pictorialist photographs widely, as well as in the 7th Annual International Salon of Pictorial Photography at the Provincial Exhibition in New Westminster in 1927. In 1928 he was one of three jurors (with John Vanderpant) for the 8th Annual International Salon at the Exhibition.
In 1930 Cox exhibited five photographs at the Canadian National Exhibition, in the Toronto Salon of Canadian Photography. He was living in New Westminster at the time.
In 1933 Cox had the 37th exhibition in the Vancouver Art Gallery, a show of fifty "pictorial camera studies". He also showed work in the B.C. Artists Christmas exhibition at the Gallery in 1933.
In 1938 Cox's solo exhibition, originally scheduled for May 20 to June 3, was delayed until the summer due to the occupation of the art gallery by the "sitdowners" strike.
Cox died in Vancouver in 1972 at the age of 87, according to B.C. Vital Statistics on-line. His employment was noted as "Engineer - Federal Government" from which he had retired in 1950.
