Remembering World War I Yarmouth Connections
Wartime Heritage Centenary Remembrance Initiative
Do you have a relative from Yarmouth Nova Scotia who served in the First World War? Those Who Served (1914-1918) The Wartime Heritage Association has now published "Those Who Served 1914 -1918" on-line; a working list of men and women of Yarmouth Nova Scotia who served during World War I. This project is the cornerstone of the Association's First World War Centenary Remembrance Initiatives. Many hours of volunteer time have gone into the historical research to create a detailed list of all those from the Town and County of Yarmouth who served for this on-line publication, as well as the supporting database with additional details on each individual. Included on that list, Wartime Heritage has identified 181 individuals from Yarmouth who died during the war; each with profiles telling their stories. One of the discoveries the research uncovered were the 23 men with connections to Yarmouth who died during the war and whose names were not engraved on the Yarmouth War Memorial when it was completed in 1923. With no living Veterans of World War I left in Canada or abroad, the oral histories from relatives, the photographs, the letters home and the archival documentation such as their original wartime sign-up (attestation) papers enable us to learn about "Those Who Served". 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 Partnership led by Imperial War Museum is a growing network of over 3,000 not-for-profit organizations from 50 countries planning to mark the Centenary.
