World War 1

This page will progressively include material relating to the commemoration of the servicemen and women of the First World War as it relates to Fitzroy.
The first inclusion is a data base of approximately 3000 names of those who enlisted with either a Fitzroy address, had next  of kin in Fitzroy, or had some other association with the suburb. At the time the population of Fitzroy was about 34,000.
