The Town of Carman and RM of Dufferin are proud of the fine record of the men and women of the district who have served their country. The Memorial Hall in Carman is dedicated to the memory of those who served in World War I.

Roseisle War Memorial

red brick monument with memorial plaques

On July 23, 1989, the Roseisle community dedicated the Roseisle War Memorial in honour of those who served in WWI, WWII and the Korean War. A Remembrance Day church service and laying of wreaths is held each November 11 to keep the memory of their service to their country alive.

Monument to WWI Soldiers – Roseisle Memorial Rose Garden

A light grey granite obelisk with its simple message, “Lest We Forget” marks a section of the Roseisle Memorial Rose Garden dedicated to local soldiers who died in WWI. In commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of WWI, C/D MHAC guided local students in researching the lives and deaths of eight soldiers from the Roseisle area who lost their lives in the 1914–18 conflict. On July 1, 2014, each student planted a rose in memory of ‘their’ soldier in the war memorial section of the Rose Garden. A ninth casualty was late identified and honoured in a special ceremony.

Each of these soldiers is buried or memorialized abroad. Thanks to Blaine Huston, Devon & Katlyn Klassen, Jesse & Kelsey Murphy, Caleb, Jenna and Shaelyn Swain, Gracyn Tranq and Stephanie Fraser for helping find them a special place of honour in their own home soil.

Gracyn Tranq places a plaque to mark the rose planted
in memory of her great-great uncle David Wilson
