FATHER: George Bundy
MOTHER: Mary Bundy

Leonard Bundy immigrated from England in 1907, the 1911 census, finds him living as a lodger in Toronto East, at 370 Berkley Street; and working as a Toronto policeman. The 1912 directories, show that he continued to live at the same place, and work as a policeman, until 1912; after 1913 no reference to him.

Corporal Leonard Bundy was wounded and missing his unit was in the area of Keersalaere to St. Julien, Belgium at the time.

      He was presumed dead on the 24th of April 1915. His remains have never been found, so he is commemorated in the Menin Gate (Ypres) Memorial.

He is also commemorated in a war memorial at Eaton Socon
