Honour Roll

Stratford Honour Roll

The purpose of the Stratford Honour Roll project was to ensure those who died while serving our country while at war are not forgotten. This project recognizes and honours 10 soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice: who did not return from overseas conflicts and those who died at home as a result of the injuries received in those conflicts. This project has also made the existing cenotaph fully accessible so it can be used as an engagement piece for Veterans, Armed Forces members, and residents. It will also serve as a community learning piece for our youth. It is intended to be a place that people can gather throughout the year for remembrance and reflection.

Additionally, Two Interpretive Panels have been created by the Town of Stratford Heritage Committee to tell the story of these 10 individuals, one for each WWI and WWII

Interpretive Panels

On November 8, 2021, an official unveiling of the Stratford honour roll took place in front of the cenotaph at the Town of Stratford.

Cathrina Mugford, Granddaughter of William Joseph Stewart, spoke a few words about the effects of her grandfather not coming home had on the family. Her grandmother who was left a widow with small children, and her mother who grew up without a father.

Stephen Daniel Gauthier, Grandnephew of Daniel W. McInnis, did a reading of Poem “Thoughts of Home" which Daniel McInnis wrote and had published while he was overseas.
