There is a Walter Chas Freeman age 29  who arrived at Halifax Nova Scotia on the Tunisian 14 Apr 1911. He is listed as a labourer and his destination is Toronto Ontario.

Added: apologies MaureenNY.....I looked at your link and only saw who I thought was a Walter Ed Freeman but a second look has found Walter Chas lower down on the same page, and I don't now think the other Freeman is even a Walter? I didn't realize what I had found was on the same page until just now.
We search for information but it is up to the thread owner to verify that it is correct.

Is he the son of Henry and Dorcas Freeman? If so it looks like he died in British Columbia and, at some time, changed his surname to Bradley.

If the Walter and Beatrice that Jacquie noted above are the ones you are looking for, there is a passenger list for them:

Ship - Empress of Australia

Walter Chas. Freeman, age 71, retired
Beatrice Freeman, age 53, housewife

Last address in UK - 56, Bamber St. Peterborough, Northants.

Country of last permanent residence (columns give choice of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Eire, Other parts of the British Empire, and Foreign Countries) - Other part of British Empire marked for both.

Country of intended future permanent residence: Canada

Walter and Beatrice disembarked in Montreal.

Thanks bbart , well spotted . I did find that record some time ago , but thanks for details . It was the date and record of him leaving uk to canada originaly,  also any info on his early life in canada . Believe  He had previous military service in uk ,
 If it was him entering in1911 ( have him on 1911. Uk census ). So would he have served in canadian foces in WW1 ? He worked on a canadian railway ,would he have been in a reserved occupation ? Was there conscription in canada In WW1 ?  Thanks
