Repatriation?

Been doing some research into a fellow by the name of Pte Wilfred Charles Lane. Though technically not a battle of WW1, (and if not appropriate for this forum I appologise) he was part of the ill fated Siberian Expedition Force in 1919. Records show he was stricken on the way home, and transfered to Hong Kong, where he died on March 10, 1919, and given a full miltary furneral and buried in a British Cemetary.

But the records also show that a couple of months later, he was disinterred and his body repatirated to Canada, and buried in a cemetary in very small Southwestern Ontario hamlet.

My question is who and why would that have happened? Were any others repaterated after the war?
