Please help..looking for a William Henry Moss who left his family to go to Canada

Query by angie3011

I'm writing this in hope that someone can help me find my great-great-grand father,Mr William Henry Moss.
I have family information on him till 1901 from using census in England.But,he doesn't appear on the 1911 census.

My Great Aunt, who was a Moss until marriage, told me that the story she new was that her Grand - father had gone to Canada to make a better life and was meant to send for his family when settled. This he never did! I have managed so far to find bits of information which verifies this story, in forms of a copy of the passenger list of the ship he traveled on and the Fifth Census of Canada,1911. But, this is all the information i have and i would love it if someone could come to my rescue and provide more information on what happened to him after the 1911 Census.

I have added all the info i have regarding his time in Canada below.
