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.

Christmas is for Sharing. Produced in 2014 the Sainsbury’s Christmas advert was made in partnership with The Royal British Legion. It commemorates the extraordinary events of Christmas Day, 1914, when the guns fell silent and two armies met in no-man’s land, sharing gifts – and even playing football together.
