Alternative Names

When searching for Canadian casualties on our site, please be aware that there could be many names that are misspelt or that the soldier was also known by, or served under, a completely different name.

In addition, many names have been transcribed incorrectly from the Library & Archives personnel files onto other databases including the Commonwealth War Graves Commission or the Canadian Virtual War Memorial.

We have attempted to be as accurate as possible in our alphabetical listings but to assist researchers this page also gives many of the alternative names that we have encountered along the way.

For instance when searching for a casualty, a Mac could be listed under Mc or a Whyte shown as White, Allen as Allan, Dickson as Dixon, Wood as Woods etc.

One further anomaly is that some French-Canadian names are shown by their Anglicised version, ie: Edouard as Edward , Henri to Henry, Moise as Moses.

We invite anyone who may have confirmation of the correct spelling of a name to contact us so that we may research the records and make the appropriate correction.

This table lists all the soldiers who served under alternative names, plus it shows different spellings of names which may or may not indicate errors on behalf of the LAC, CWGC or CVWM.
