I assume you've already seen his service record - click on the file beside Digitized service file - PDF format

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/personnel-records/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=396620

 

The Canadian War Diaries are all online as well http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/Pages/war-diaries.aspx

 

If you look at his webpage on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website you will also see there is a concentration report - Edward was originally buried elsewhere and then moved to his current resting place. https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/523048/fotheringham,-edward/

Their webpage for the Cemetery adds " The cemetery was begun by French troops in August 1915, but it was first used as a Commonwealth cemetery by the 47th (London) Division in January 1916. During the greater part of the war it was a front-line cemetery used by fighting units and field ambulances, and protected from German observation by a slight rise in the ground. Plot II was begun in April 1917 by the 46th (North Midland) Division and by the middle of October 1918, Plot III, Row A and part of Row B, had been filled. The remainder of Plot III, and the ends of certain rows in Plot I, contain graves brought in after the Armistice from the battlefields and small cemeteries (including Maroc Churchyard), north and east of Grenay. "
