Library and Archives Canada - Index for 'Circumstances of Death Registers, First World War'


As part of the digitizing program at 'Library and Archives Canada', the 'Circumstances of Death Registers' (CoDR) have been made available. These are the original registers used to record cause of death for each Canadian Expeditionary Force soldier lost in WW1. As such it provides additional details on-line, where before this information was only accessible through acquisition of the soldier's full service record.


Here I have provided an index that compliments the 'Circumstances of Death Registers - First World War' Results page listings. Through this you should be able to locate the records pertaining to your relative or research subject that much quicker.


Please bear in mind that whilst the records are logical in an A to Z format overall, names on the 'reels' are sometimes a little hit and miss, with part or overflow records tapped onto the end of a given reel. Some names that should be at the beginning of one reel are sometimes found at the end of a reel, or on a following or even a previous reel. So, do stay with it, use the index below to lock down where your relative or research subject's name is, and do work back and forth if you don't find what you are looking for straight away.


A similar situation exists with the Commonwealth War Graves Registers - First World War. I will index these too in due course.


One tip, when scanning through a reel, use of the < or > buttons can be slow. Type in even numbers in the 'Page' field and click the 'Go' button to slide through the records a little quicker.
