No. 1 Casualty Clearing Station
Canada's casualty clearing stations, located within a few miles of the Front, were one of the most important links within the Canadian Army Medical Corps for the treatment of wounded soldiers during WW I. The medical staff of the stations treated emergency cases and then if necessary evacuated the wounded soldiers to hospitals further behind the lines or in England for more extensive medical aid. While the stations were staffed by Canadians, they administered to wounded soldiers from all Allied armies. Not everyone brought to the stations would survive, however, and the official records of their deaths may be sparse. 
 
The chaplains of No.1 Canadian Casualty Clearing Station maintained a separate register of some of the servicemen who died at No. 1 CCCS and in so doing provided us with a possibly unique account of the passing of 879 soldiers, which has been transcribed into this database. For No. 1 CCCS, these records are witness to the destructiveness of the war and the tragic loss of life. The chaplains who signed most of the records were James Patrick Fallon, Walter Francis O’Neill Fisher, Andrew Dunn Reid, John Knox Tibbits, Geoffrey Cyril d’Easum, Robert Kerr Lambert, and Ralph Lionel Brydges. Their original journals are held at Library and Archives Canada as the Record of Deaths, 17 February 1916–10 February 1919, a record  maintained at No. 1 CCCS, (Record Group 9, series IIIC10, volume 4556). Learn more...
 
Biographies
In some cases, BIFHSGO volunteers have prepared biographies of the soldiers, indicated by on the listing.The volunteers supplemented the information from the No. 1 CCCS records with other publicly available information. In some instances they have been able to connect with family members, who may have been able to provide more personal information and family pictures. Every attempt has been made to ensure that these biographies are accurate but, if an error has been made, we do apologize. Please advise us so we can fix the biography.
