Text Box: FORWARD

This index was done for the assistance of people trying to locate information on a deceased person who served in either the North West/ Royal North West/ Royal Canadian Mounted Police and whose obituary appeared in the RCMP QUARTERLY. The total time taken was approximately 4 months. 

I would like to thank Mr. Malcolm Wake and Mr. Bill MacKay of the RCMP Museum in Regina for their assistance and allowing me to use their copies of the RCMP QUARTERLY. I would also like to thank the Historical Section of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Ottawa for their assistance and the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society for printing the index. Lastly, I would like to thank my wife, Marlene, for her patience and understanding when I would disappear into my underground cave each night and on weekends to finish this project. 

I have recently retired from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police after serving for 30 years, 2 months and 11 days (so I'm told). All of my service was in Saskatchewan ("F" Division) except for my training which took place in Ottawa, Ont. at "N" Division. As I was preparing the index, I would run across names of members I had known and it brought back a flood of memories. It was a step back in time and some were good memories and some were tragic but memories still the same.  

I will keep my comments very short and say no more than I hope everyone who uses the index benefits from it and it becomes a useful, helpful index.

Text Box: INTRODUCTION

The Obituary Index is for the RCMP QUARTERLY commencing with Volume 1, No. 1, July 1933 up to and including Volume 54, No. 4, October 1989. The index covers those persons who died and for which obituaries were published in the aforementioned publication. Just because a persons name doesn't appear in the index, doesn't mean that the person did not serve in either the North West Mounted Police, Royal North West Mounted Police or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. It may be that no one advised THE QUARTERLY. Persons are then urged to contact: 

The Commissioner
Royal Canadian Mounted Police
Att: Historical Section
Ottawa, Ontario  K1A 0R2
Canada

The obituaries are on file in the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society Library, 110 - 1514  11th Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan.  There is a $2.00 charge to receive a copy of an obituary (includes postage and handling).  Please use Order Form when sending request.

The index is printed in alphabetical order using surnames first, followed by their given names/initials and followed by nicknames in ()'s. 

The next column is the Regimental Number of the person. There were times when some people had more than one number in their service. I have tried to use the first number given them. Numbers preceded by an "O" indicates an Officer number. An "R" indicates a Reserve Constable. An "S" indicates a Special Constable. An "M" indicates a Marine Member; a "C" a Civilian Member. 

The next column gives the rank the person held when the took their discharge from the Force or the rank they held when they died while serving in the Force. 

The next two columns list the Volume and Issue number of the RCMP QUARTERLY where the obituary can be found. A listing of the Volume and Issue numbers corresponding with the month and year in which the quarterly was published appears on pages vi & vii.
