Son of Louis Berthiaume and Lucie Deslandes, of St-Eugène-de-Grantham, Québec. He stated being born in 1891 when he enlisted.

Hormidas Berthiaume was one of the original members of the 22nd Battalion and he had been part of many battles. Severely wounded on 14 August 1918 at the Battle of Amiens, he was evacuated to England and hospitalized during more than four months. On 15 January 1919, he was released form hospital on medical leave for ten days, but less than a week later, maybe due to the Spanish flu, he suffered a pneumonia and hospitalized at Endell Street Military Hospital, in London. Two days later, he died of acute appendicitis.

Brookwood is 30 miles from London (M3 to Bagshot and then A322). The main entrance to Brookwood Military Cemetery is on the A324 from the village of Pirbright. Brookwood Military Cemetery is owned by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and is the largest Commonwealth war cemetery in the United Kingdom, covering approximately 37 acres. In 1917, an area of land in Brookwood Cemetery (originally The London Necropolis) was set aside for the burial of men and women of the forces of the Commonwealth and Americans, who had died, many of battle wounds, in the London district. This site was further extended to accommodate the Commonwealth casualties of the Second World War, and American, Belgian, Czech, Dutch, French and Polish plots containing the graves of Allied casualties. There are also German and Italian plots where prisoners of war lie buried.
