Can you help find Canadian CWGC relatives

Each month the Commonwealth War Graves Commission issues an appeal for next of kin for soldiers they commemorate. The September list,  which has 70 names, includes two who served with the Canadian Forces.

Driver W. G. Plumb (453108) died 21 January 1920. He was with the Canadian Army Service Corps and is interred at Camberwell Old Cemetery. It is now possible to mark the gravesite; a gravestone is being produced.

According to his attestation paper, William George Plumb was born in London on 13 November 1887 and enlisted in Niagara. It appears he chose to remain in England after the war. No cause of death is on his military file.

Private George Taylor (202042) is buried at Horningblow (St John) Churchyard. A memorial is being installed as the exact burial place cannot be located.

According to his service file, he was born in Burton on Trent on 29 July 1894 and enlisted in Toronto. His widow remarried to become Mrs Minnie Ager of 100 Sutherland Drive, Leaside, ON. He had a sister Alice living at 337 Symington Ave., Toronto. He was discharged with Tuberculosis. According to his military file, he died on 23 March 1921.
