Summary/Abstract: The paper treats the war memorials in Plovdiv made by ethno-religious and social local communities for their members perished during the First World War. The comparison of the victims’ names written on the memorials and names in civil and military documents gives additional information in different directions. On the base of that analysis the author proposes statements on different problems such as specifying the still uncertain number of Plovdiv citizens perished in the war, the percentage of the victims to their own communities and to the total urban population, some anthroponomical characteristics as well as the main tasks of future researching.
