Discover the stories and remember the lives of UCC
Old Boys who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the Great War.


UCC Remembers was created in commemoration of the hundredth anniversary of the start of the First World War. It pays tribute to the UCC community’s role in the conflict with special focus on approximately 1100 Upper Canada College students, faculty and staff members who enlisted including the 179 who fell in service.

Discover the stories of Old Boys who lost their lives on active service. See history come alive as you read testimonials, diary entries and biographies. Remember the price paid by previous generations for the freedom we enjoy today.

UCC Remembers will continue to grow. If  you have memories or family histories to share relating to the First World War please contact College archivist Jill Spellman. Your contributions (with permission) may be shared through UCC Remembers.

This site is dedicated to all the Old Boys who have served, and continue to serve, in Canadian and allied forces. These Old Boys are an inspiration to today’s students, faculty and staff. Their dedication to our country and to the school is remarkable.



*A special note of appreciation goes to 2014 and 2015 summer interns Franny Champion, Marshall Hogarth and Anna Porter for their hard work which contributed to the creation of this site.
