True to his Country
Family and Friends
Gone but not forgotten
     
 
 
He died that we might live
Greater love
Hath no man than this

Lord grant me grace
To meet my favourite boy
In the presence of my God
     
 
 
Though lost to sight
To memory dear

In honour of a hero's grave
He had done his bit
For his country's sake
May his name be ever praised

Shorncliffe Military Cemetery

During the Great War many Canadians were stationed at or near Shorncliffe, including a Machine Gun School, No. 9 Canadian General Hospital, No. 11 Canadian General Hospital. The Canadian Army Medical Corps Training Depot was close to Shorncliffe throughout the war. On three occasions Canadian soldiers were killed during air raids on Shorncliffe. Every year a Canada Day Ceremony is held at the Cemetery. Some photos of the 2003 ceremony can be seen here.

A simple love
A simple trust
A simple duty done

     
 
 
 
"The Strife is Over, The Battle Done"
     
 
 
   
His King and Country called
He answered with his life
 
 
   
"Sleep in Jesus"
