Footnote and Endnotes are similar in purpose – They are used to reference additional information. However, the major difference between footnotes and endnotes is its placement in your document.

Footnotes are inserted at the end of a page, while Endnotes are inserted at the end of a section, chapter or document. And the Endnotes are in Roman Numerals e.g. i,  ii, iii,  iv…while Footnotes are inserted with whole numbers like: 1,2,3,4, etc.
