Canadian Regiment in Aldershot WWI and WWII

I met John Pask at the West Surrey Family History (UK) event last year who asked for help in locating a connection to Sgt. W.H. May, M.M. & Bar. 

Holy Trinity Church in Aldershot was used by various Canadian  regiments for church services during WW2 and they have a 'Canadian garden' which is a memorial to these men.

John is wondering if anyone has a connection to this soldier and if they would be interested in getting in touch. 

Details:
9940 Sgt. William Henry May b. 14 Jan. 1896 d.1st Oct.1914 buried. Etaples Military Cemetery, France.

A small history on this project and about Sgt. May is provided on the attached pdf.
