Canadian Veterans Death Cards – World War I – on-line at LAC

New at Library and Archives Canada (LAC) – Canadian Veterans Death Cards: First World War.
This collection includes Canadian World War I nurses and soldiers, if veterans, and a few others, but only those whose deaths were reported to Veterans Affairs up to the 1960s. The collection does not include those who died overseas during the war.
Before searching, check the Help section for more information and for explanations of abbreviations, etc.
This collection is part of LAC’s digitized microform, so is not searchable. The cards were originally used as an index and were filmed alphabetically. Details can include next of kin, date and cause of death and place of burial.
