First World War

Honour Rolls, Service Rolls and Registers of the Dead

During and at the conclusion of the First World War, the compilation of rolls of honour and rolls of service was undertaken by schools, churches, cities, organizations and business as a means of paying tribute to those who had volunteered for service in the Canadian Expeditionary Force and especially to those who were killed during the course of the War. Information in publications of this nature can vary widely from one to another, but may include a record of war service, a short biographical sketch, or a photograph; in some instances, the publication is a simple list of names.
