In 2012, Wartime Heritage began researching those from our local community of Yarmouth Town and County of Nova Scotia who’s names appear on the Yarmouth Cenotaph and prepared web pages for each individual.  In 2014, as a World War I Centenary Initiative, the Association began to identity  individuals with connections to Yarmouth Town and County who served during World War I.   At present, the list contains over 1,500 men and women.  Information in Remembering World War I is updated regularly. If you know of someone missing from our list or you recognize any of the existing names, we encourage you to please share photos, letters, and memories with us so we may include them in the collection.
The Association has identified 152 casualties of individuals connected to Yarmouth Town and County in the Second World War. Over the years, the Association has collected information on each casualty  from sources that include the American Battle Monuments Commission, the Books of Remembrance in Ottawa, the Canadian Virtual War Memorial (Veterans Affairs), the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the 117 names on the Yarmouth Town and County War Memorial, and other local sources.   Nova Scotia Casualties Casualties WWII - Yarmouth Town and County       World War II Deaths by Month, Day, and Year  Yarmouth Military Service - WWI Battalions

Over the years Wartime Heritage has maintained a connection with Telegraphist Air Gunners who served in World War II and the Association has attended Memorial Services in England at Lee-on-Solent on a number of occasions.
