Second World War Service Files: Canadian Armed Forces War Dead
Posted 02 September 2008
By Sylvie Tremblay, Acting Head, Canadian Genealogy Centre, Client Services Division, Library and Archives Canada



Holten Cemetery in The Netherlands was initially built by Canadian soldiers for interment of their WW II Canadian comrades. Local school children still put candles on their graves each Christmas Eve in recognition of their sacrifice.


Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new online database, Second World War Service Files: Canadian Armed Forces War Dead.

Through this online database, researchers can access references to the service files in the Department of National Defence Fonds (RG 24) for the members of the Canadian Armed Forces who lost their lives during this conflict. Over 1,159,000 men and women served in the Canadian Armed Forces during the Second World War (1939-1945) and 44,093 people lost their lives.

The database is available at: Library and Archives Canada gratefully acknowledges the contribution of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, without which this project would not have been possible.

The contributions of many Library and Archives staff were instrumental in the success of this project, and their efforts are much appreciated.
