Burial Information


Ontario, Canada

Grave Reference:



The Books of Remembrance contain the names of Canadians who fought in wars and died either during or after them. All the books are kept in the Memorial Chamber located in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Ontario. Quite aptly named are these testaments to Canada's past, for by their very title they remind us to never forget the foundations of courage on which Canada is built. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is searching to find the graves of these casualties whose names are commemorated within the Canadian Book of Remembrance, but have no known grave location. Those casualties whose graves have not been identified will be commemorated on an appropriate memorial in Canada or the United Kingdom.

  • Circumstances of death registers– Private Bellemare is currently recorded on the Canadian Book of Remembrance as having no burial location. He died at his home in Shawinigan, Quebec of influenza. His grave is recorded as C.4716.
  • Circumstances of death registers– Private Bellemare was initially S.O.S. (Struck Off Strength) as a deserter April 3, 1919. That proved to be incorrect, as his lack of appearance was due to his death on November 6, 1918.
