Died in Service is a commemorative database featuring some 1800 individual wartime biographies of those, primarily from Newfoundland and Labrador, who gave their life during the First World War while in service with the (Royal) Newfoundland Regiment, the Canadian Expeditionary Force, the British Army, the Australian Imperial Force and the Royal Naval Reserve (Newfoundland). Later additions are intended to include those of the Voluntary Aid Detachment and the Newfoundland Mercantile Marine.

Information in the database has been researched and compiled by Alistair Rice who has generously donated it to The Rooms Corporation for public use via the Archives Division. Work to format the data and make it available on line was begun by Rooms staff during the summer and fall of 2016 and continues to this day (2022).

Died In Service may be searched by individual surname or service number. Inquires or questions about the database may be sent to archives@therooms.ca

If you are searching for multiple records please use quotations. I.e. “John Smith”
