HILL, Charles William   Woodland, London (Section A,AEN,AES,L,VA,VAA,VB,Y)   Middlesex   London   MX-LC-152-1

The public library London Ontario are usually very helpful, they may be able to find an obituary for you, although you haven't got a specific date which would help.  Unless our obituary expert Run Kitty could find something for you.

Thank you for all the info, I will pass it onto my fellow researcher. The burial at Woodland cemetery is the entry I found.  It may not relate to Charles the solider but he did die in London Ontario on 28th Feb 1966

That was the regiment number.  ???

The date of passing is very useful if you contact the library.

Regiment Number?  Sorry being from the UK I don't understand.  Is this burial in a veteran section?

The blue form in his WW1 records state he died on 28th Feb 1966 and his service number was 763259

I've just found the following on Find a grave which may be him although I gather the cemetery is some 2 1/2 hours drive from Westminster hospital?

Charles W Hill
Birth 1884
Death 1966 (aged 8182)
Burial  Pine Hills Cemetery Scarborough, Toronto Municipality, Ontario, Canada

In the same grave is Alice
Alice Hill
Birth 1886
Death 1979 (aged 9293)
Burial  Pine Hills Cemetery Scarborough, Toronto Municipality, Ontario, Canada

Again it may not be him
