Illness or accident claimed the lives of thirty-four members of the Unit. All were interred in local cemeteries in Great Britain, with collections
from their fellow members going toward the purchase of headstones at their grave sites. There was also a group of  three hundred and thirty-five
men who were returned to Newfoundland due to accident or illness. This is a list of names of those who died, including their home towns, date
of  death and place of burial.
