Queensland is one of only three states in Australia to register the deaths of servicemen and women who died in the First World War.
Registrar-General Porter spent years ensuring that families of servicemen and women who enlisted in Queensland and died while on active duty overseas were able to access detailed death certificates.
The collection of hand-written entries are a sombre record of the noble sacrifice made by Queensland soldiers and nurses. The Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDM) has released a selection of digitised casualty records from the First World War to commemorate the Queensland men and women who died while on active duty.
