Bruce Thornley, edited by Clifford Collier
Over 15,000 men and women who lived in Ontario just before they went overseas died there in the service of their country during and just after World War Two. The registration books of these deaths are arranged by year of registration and chronologically by the date of registration of the death. However, when Bruce Thornley went looking for family members in these records, he discovered that they were not indexed and therefore difficult to search. So he set out to make an alphabetical listing by year so that researchers would be able to order the appropriate microfilms. Space did not permit Thornley to enter all the information he found on the death certificates.
Before he could complete his work, Thornley died. Clifford Collier, then Publishing Committee Coordinator, took on the task of confirming the findings in this index and making the information provided consistent. As with any index, the researcher is advised to go back to the original microfilmed records to confirm the information and see what else might be there, such as date and place of birth or names of parents. Names of ships and planes are included to make this a definitive resource for those with relatives who died in the service of their country.
