The Imperial War Museum Lives of the First World War website is an invaluable resource to researchers, as it is one of the few that includes details of those who survived the war, as well as the lost. It includes nurses, conscientious objectors, and many more.

Family historians can register with the website free of charge and then add their own photos and 'stories' about their ancestors, creating a memorial, whether or not they actually died during the First World War. There is no need to take out a paid-for subscription unless you want to access the records on the website.

FFHS would like to appeal to family historians during this year, the centenary of the First World War Armistice, to add details to their ancestors who are named on this website as soon as possible. With everyone's help, we could 'fill in the blanks' for all those listed on the website by 11 November 2018 and ensure they are never forgotten.

Thank you to Rosie Rowley, Macclesfield Projects Administrator, of the Family History Society of Cheshire and Macclesfield Reflects WW1 Project, who has brought this to our attention.
