I am located in southern Saskatchewan in Canada. I am researching the following families: Gorius (specifically Canadian branch), Schwartz (Quebec & Saskatchewan) and Tiefenbach (Saskatchewan) as well as applicable families related by marriage.|
I am interested in trading family antidotes, photos and gravesite information.

It also looking like all the burials in that cemetery date from 09/04/1917 onwards. Also the write up for the cemetery says-
There are now over 150, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, nearly one-fifth are unidentified and special memorials are erected to 15 Canadian soldiers believed to be buried among them.
The CWGC dont like to put a name down unless there is 99% proof. But with his CEF records you might be onto a winner?

I expect the precise location of his grave was once marked but like many others once the front line had moved and a with the amount of ordnance that was dropped they were destroyed/lost.
If Souchez Canadian Cemetery still existed as a cemetery there would be other graves and a marker/stone saying near this spot/in this cemetery.
But I could not find a Souchez Canadian Cemetery on the CWGC. But it is well worth looking into, as with Frommelles in France.
Ive found the graves of 2 soldiers in the UK that had been missed placed (They even had private headstones but the location had been lost by the CWGC).
