Canadian website that may help

"Veterans Affairs Canada" website: you may search by surname for relatives/ancestors killed in action. I noticed quite a few of the names included English men and men with English parents. Perhaps this might help those searching for family who moved to Canada. http://www(.)vac-acc(.)gc(.)ca/general/sub(.)cfm?source=collections/virtualmem (remove brackets, please) PS After posting this, I noticed that there was a message before mine for Commonwealth War Graves Commission. I believe that website includes all of the Veterans Affairs Canada information.
