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.
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.  Casualties WWII - Yarmouth Town and County       World War II Deaths by Month, Day, and Year     Remembering World War II (additional links)
