Private Miller is an interesting case, his entry in the book "The First Five Hundred" shows him as died at sea from wounds sustained at Gallipoli; the CWGC Website shows him as being commemorated on the Beaumont-Hamel (Newfoundland) Memorial in France. (See both Entries below).

After a brief xonsultation (by e.mail) with an Association member who resides in Newfoundland, it would appear that the Beaumont-Hamel Memorials commemorates all those Newfoundlanders with no known grave, irrespective of the theatre of operations in which they died.
 
More to follow on this information.
