World War I
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 1,512 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.
World War II
There were 143 fatal 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 names on the Yarmouth Town and County
War Memorial, and other local sources.
