Overseas Deaths 1940-1948

Between 1940-1948 Albertans who died overseas while serving in World War II were indexed separately under Overseas Deaths.

Overseas death indexes are organized alphabetically by surname and then by year.

Please note that you are searching the indexes for a registration number rather than the registration records themselves.
