  • Cemetery– This is a family marker in the Ladysmith Cemetery in Ladysmith, B.C.  Private Shaw is actually buried in Duisans British Cemetery in the Pas de Calais area of France, just west of Arras.

A look at the 72nd Battalion's War Diary suggests that Private Shaw sustained his fatal wound during the attack on the Drocourt–Quéant Line.
