From librarians to farmers, shop assistants to police officers; discover the stories of local individuals researched as part of the First World War Lives project in our brand new online exhibition.
The First World War Lives project tells the previously untold stories of over 1,100 local service personnel, researched by our team of volunteers. This online exhibition highlights a selection of these stories, covering subjects such as prisoners of war, women, health and those who were stationed around the world.
In addition to viewing over 150 stories in the exhibition, you can also download a free WW1 Research Guide and browse the ever-growing First World War Lives collection of over 1,100 biographies on the archives Online Catalogue.
We would like to say a big thank you to our fantastic team of volunteers who have dedicated many hours to researching these stories since the project’s launch in 2014, and for also helping with the development of the exhibition.
