WWI Bonavista Peninsula Soldiers 


Below you will find listings of communities on the Bonavista Peninsula (also including Clarenville area). It also includes now resettled communities as well as some small island communities just off the Peninsula’s coast. Individuals are arranged by the community they recorded as their home town taken from a number of sources including The Rooms, Royal Newfoundland Regiment, census records, public submissions and other research. This list is far from all-inclusive but we hope to fill in the gaps as this project progresses and welcome any information. If you have anything to add about a person who served from our region during World War One, omitted community or any other error please contact us.


Over the course of time we hope to acknowledge everyone from our region that served.
