The Honour Roll records and commemorates Australians of Chinese descent who have served and died defending the country during the First World War. 

The Museum’s Honour Roll contains some personal particulars of each person, including details of their contribution to the war effort. 

The list contains information transcribed directly from original source records. Some may contain cause of death, place of death, and cemetery or memorial details.

Enhancing the database

The Museum will continually upgrade and enhance the database as we uncover more information about Chinese Anzac soldiers, or more photos and objects are donated into the museum’s collections. 

You can assist:  amendments and additions

If you have family members who are Chinese Anzacs, we would like to hear from you and add their names to our growing list of soldiers. Click here to fill out the information submission form. 

For information corrections, please send an email to [email protected] 

The Museum of Chinese Australian History greatly acknowledges the maintenance of this Honour Roll by:
