World War 1 deaths

This is a selection of Donohue (& variants) soldiers killed in the First World War.It has been transcribed from “The War Graves of the British Empire” series -”The Register of the names of those who fell in the Great War.” This series of booklets were compiled and published by order of the Imperial War Graves Commission, London in 1930.

in alphabetic order. Today these servicemen’s details and other Donohue (& variants) are available online from the following Commonwealth War Graves Commission site: http:/
