The Canadian Merchant Navy War Dead Registry

Veterans Affairs Canada has a searchable index to the names of seamen who were killed while serving in Canada's Merchant Marine. The date range I found was 1915 to 1947.
These mariners should also be found in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission records, which typically have a bit more information. For common names it may be easier to find them in the VAC database.

The VAC database can also be used to search for the names of 625 Canadian Merchant Navy vessels on which they served.
