Christian CLAUSEN, St Andrews Memorial in Newfoundland

Classification: Query
Surnames: CLAUSEN, CHRISTOFFERSEN
I am looking for information on Christian was born at Bornholm, Denamrk:

He was a sailor and he fell in the first war possibly at sea and according to an old family postcard that the family of his sister, Margrethe CLAUSEN CHRISTOFFERSEN, has there is a memorial erected at St Andrews located in Newfoundland in memory of parishioners who fell in the 1914-1918 Navy, Army. Would appreciate any information anyone can give me to locate this memorial and also to learn more about Christian CLAUSEN. It is believed by the family that Christian sailed all over the world in his profession as a sailor. He may have emigrated from Denmark to Newfoundland, but don't have that information at this time. He had the following siblings:

Andreas CLAUSEN: It is believed by Margrethe's family that he too was a sailor and sailed all over the world like his brother, Christian. This is all I know about Andreas.

Margrethe Marie Hansine CLAUSEN: She married Alfred Christian CHRISTOFFERSEN in 1914 at Bornholm. She died in 1928 on the island of Bornholm, Denmark.

Appreciate any help anyone can give me to find information on the memorial erected at St Andrews and if anyone knows anything about Christian CLAUSEN or anyone else in his family. If he immigrated to Canada I would appreciate hearing how I can get that information too.
