Another avenue to follow could be double checking and cross referencing, for example B Gordon may have been 'Bert' there is a contender for than name on CWGC. But I wouldn't add it until confirmed by other sources.
Name: GORDON, JOSEPH ALBERT
Initials: J A
Nationality: Canadian
Rank: Private
Regiment/Service: Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (Eastern Ontario Regiment)
Age: 29
Date of Death: 04/06/1916
Service No: McG/272
Additional information: Son of James and Mary Gordon, of Goderich, Ontario.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Panel 10.
Memorial: YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL

Personally I wouldn't list them if I wasn't 100% certain it was the man. One mistake and thats the one everyone concentrates one when evaluating your work.

I searched under the country of Canada, and only two came up, and that is the one I listed. You made a general search and found him. at least the correct one has been found. At least I had a go at collating the memorial no else did and not to many rushing to help only complaind that ONE was not correct

Yes that is him

I spent an hour on the CWGC site doing an open search, surname only. Then after reading what has been found, I did another search and the record came up. I must say this is not the first time this has happened no record found but then the next time I do a search it appears.

Many thanks
