McGregor was one day shy of his twenty-fourth birthday when he enlisted with the CEF on 19 February 1916. The only son of John and Emma McGregor, of 652 York St., London, ON, Charles had six sisters. Charles enlisted in Dunneville, ON, with the 114th Canadian Infantry Battalion, but served in the 2nd Canadian Mounted Riffles, and was promoted to Lance Corporal on 14 October 1918. With the end of hostilities, he returned to England on 13 February 1919. However, his body was found lifeless on railway tracks near Waterloo Station, London, England, just seven days later, having just returned from leave in Inverness. A military tribunal ruled his death accidental.
He is commemorated on page 538 of the First World War Book of Remembrance (Memorial Chamber, Peace Tower, Parliament Hill).
