Parramatta and World War One

We welcome visitors to the Parramatta & Visitor Information Centre, to view the touch table displays and publications which pay tribute to the Australians who fought in military operations.

In 2018, we marked the end of the Centenary of World War One, also known as ‘The Great War,’ which endured from 4 August 1914 to 11 November 1918.

The City of Parramatta Research and Collection Services, along with a team of dedicated volunteers, compiled the biographies of 1,962 soldiers, seamen and nurses from the Parramatta District – the culmination of a four-year project.

These stories of dedication, courage and loss are featured here as well as the interactive touch table display in the Parramatta Heritage and Visitor Information Centre.

We’re also publishing a range of eBooks from our ‘World War One’ series:
