The World War 1 nominal roll contains the details of approximately 324,000 AIF personnel, recorded to assist with their repatriation to Australia from overseas service following World War 1.

The roll was compiled before October 1919, most likely at the Australian Imperial Force Administrative Headquarters in London. It includes the names of those who served with the Australian Flying Corps and Australian Medical Corps.
The details recorded include: service number, final rank, name, military unit at time of death or end of service, date of enlistment, non-effective entry (i.e. how that person became no longer effective, for example by returning to Australia), and date of death or start date of non-effect.
