WW1 - Coburg Cemetery : The Commonwealth War Graves Commission list has been augmented with 12 servicemen that died post-war from illnesses or injuries suffered in service, but whose burial is not recorded by the CWGC.
October, 2017 : UPDATE
All Rolls of Honour and corresponding Indexes have been updated.
There are new additions to each (identified in the Indexes,; also many new Family Notices have been added - I’ve said it before, but this really is all likelihood the final update.
There are also updates to the “Women In Uniform” documents - both for Darebin and the wider area covered by WikiNorthia - no new entries, for several updates to the existing material
With the ever-increasing volume of material available for downloading, I have had to split the World War One section to separate pages - maybe an extra click for you, but a neater layout for everybody else
One small (perhaps large) celebration for First World War researchers is that National Archive have after about five years of “drip-feeding” the basic details of those that volunteered (series MT1486/1) have FINALLY completed the exercise and the Enlistment Rolls are now complete
The table to the right shows the total casualties (and a percentage of those accepted), the number that volunteered and were accepted; and the number of known volunteers that were rejected and did not enter camp - the percentage of the total that volunteered.
As a rough comparison, the AWM shows 61,351 casualties including those that died before embarking (number unknown).
There were 338,610 that embarked, nominally a casualty rate of 18.1. All our casualty rates are somewhat higher because they include many servicemen that died from war-related wounds or illnesses, but after discharge - these still somewhat controversially excluded from the AWM Honour Roll despite most of then dying in military hospitals.
