http://burnleyinthegreatwar.info/

During the Great War the town of Burnley (and it's districts) suffered a disproportionate amount of casualties compared to many other towns and cities in Great Britain. The site aims to honour the men from Burnley who served in this terrible conflict and also to show the effect of the war on the town

Since I began "Hellfire Corner" in 1996, the number of Great War websites has grown enormously. It would be a brave man who tied to maintain a links page listing them all, but these are some of my favourites.

LOCALITIES AND THEIR WAR MEMORIALS

THE WAR MEMORIALS OF BARWICK IN ELMET AND SCHOLES Nigel Marshall's excellent research commemorating the men of these two villages near Leeds.

CARMARTHENSHIRE ROLL OF HONOUR A site which presents ongoing research into all the men and women of Carmarthenshire who died in the war.

MORE THAN A NAME The stories behind the real people who might appear to be "just names" on the Stockport, Cheshire, war memorial. This site is a the record of an ongoing study by John Hartley. Look for his name on the "Hellfire Corner" contents page to see some of his moving Research and Remembrance articles.

CHAILEY 1914-1918 Paul Nixon's site about the Parish of Chailey, in East Sussex.

DERBYSHIRE LADS AT WAR: 1914-1918 Andrew Hesketh's site includes listings of the names onon many of the county's memorials.

WOLVERHAMPTON WAR MEMORIALS |On this site, Doug Lewis presents his research on the surprisingly large number of memorials in Wolverhampton.

REGIMENTAL AND UNIT HISTORY

THE KAISER'S CROSS Chris Boonzaier's growing site, dealing with the German Army of 1914-18.


THE STORY OF JOHN BARDGETT AND THE 11th (SERVICE) BATTALION BORDER REGIMENT - THE LONSDALES
Christopher Szigeti's website in memory of his grandfather.

BLACK COUNTRY TERRITORIALS Stuart Briscoe's expanding site on the history of the 6th Battalion, South Staffordshire Regiment. Includes a very useful database of names, and more.

THE BEDFORSHIRE REGIMENT IN THE GREAT WAR This site by Steve Fuller has a wealth of information about the regiment's part in the Great war.

4th CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES A website dedicated to the men of the 4th Canadian Mounted Rifles (Central Ontario Regiment). Ian Forsdike's site is a place of remembrance to those men who served with the 4th CMR in the Great War, and offers itself as a point of focus for relatives and researchers today.

THE ACCRINGTON PALS This site tells the story of the Accrington Pals in detail. The area around Serre, where the Pals Battalions attacked on 1st July, 1916, is one of the most moving places on the Western Front. Andrew Jackson has served the memory of the Pals well in this first class site.

THE LAST POST ASSOCIATION The Last Post Association is the organisation which organises and manages the daily act of remembrance at the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing in Ypres. There can be few organisations which have such an unbroken record of service to the Spirit of Remembrance.

THE THIEPVAL PROJECT This new initiative has been set up as a charity with the aim of raising funds to provide an education centre at Thiepval, near the Memorial to the Missing. The aim is to provide information to friends, families, school-children and those interested about the actions which occurred on the Somme during the first world war.

THE GALLIPOLI ASSOCIATION The Gallipoli Association's objective is to preserve the memory of the men who served in and commemorate the events of the Great War campaign on the Gallipoli peninsula Turkey that took place between April 1915 and January 1916. The Association has members worldwide. They range from veterans of the campaign itself, authors, specialists and amateur historians to relatives of those who served and those who simply have a desire to remember.

THE AUSTRALIAN COMMEMORATIVE PLAQUES PROJECT Many visitors to the Western Front (and other parts of the world) will have noticed the beautifully-made, informative bronze plaques set up in places where there was a significant Australian involvement. Like most people, I suppose, I thought that these were the product of the Australian Government. Not so - they are the work of Ross Bastiaan, who raised the money, negotiated for the sites, wrote the text and even cast the plaques himself. Ross now has a site of his own which gives more information about his project. I'm pleased to be one of the first sites to link to it.

AN UNFORTUNATE REGION "An Unfortunate Region" is how an officer described the front line area in a Christmas Day (1915) letter home. Four months later, the officer was dead, his body lost. Marco Hoveling and Peter van den Heuvel have made this site, which is about the battlefields themselves, and the history to be found there. Marco and Peter are well-known for their enthusiasm, experience and dedication to battlefield history, and this site is a very important addition to the existing Internet Great War sites.

THE SWAVESEY CHRONICLES - 1914-1918 This site is a moving document of Remembrance dedicated to the Great War casualties of one small English rural community - the village of Swavesey in Cambridgeshire, where the author of the site, Phil Curme, lives. Phil showed me round the village when we met there last summer. His views on Remembrance exactly coincide with my own and he has done an excellent job of perpetuating the memory of the Swavesey men who never came home.

THE "IN FLANDERS FIELDS" MUSEUM, YPRES The website of the Museum in the Cloth Hall at Ieper (Ypres), Belgium. The museum has recently reopened after an extensive refurbishment, and the new museum gives an excellent insight into life in Ypres and the surrounding Ypres Salient during the Great War.

Tideway School's FALLEN HEROES Site s part of the National Curriculum for England and Wales, pupils aged 15 and 16 who are studying History as part of their examination studies have to study elements of the history of the Great War. Many schools give their students the chance to visit the battlefields of the Western Front and the staff and pupils of Tideway School, which is in Newhaven, Sussex, England, created this web-site to display the results of the students' research following their visits.

CAPTAIN NOEL GODFREY CHAVASSE, VC AND BAR, MC, RAMC. (1884-1917) Noel Chavasse, son of the first Bishop of Liverpool, was the only man to win the Victoria Cross twice in the Great War. When I first learned about his life, many years ago, he became one of my first inspirational heroes. (Not because of any warlike attributes; Capt. Chavasse's role in the army was essentially a non-combatant one - but because of his humanity.) In this site, Ian Jones has created a fitting Internet Memorial to this brave man.

CARTMEL WAR MEMORIAL I never tire of seeing good sites about local war memorials and this one is in memory of the casualties (16 from the Great War and 3 from the Second World War) commemorated on the memorial at Cartmel, a small village in the southern part of the English Lake District. Howard Martin has researched the men and created the site and he has come across a very rare occurrence - a soldier (Joseph Hibbert) named on the memorial but completely unknown, until now, to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

ANZAC.ORG This is a new site produced by the Council of the Department of the Somme. It is hoped that as the site grows, it will provide valuable information for those wishing to visit the area, especially those from Australia and New Zealand.

WOLVERHAMPTON REMEMBERS Wolverhampton is quite near to where I live. This site, by Colin Haynes, gives an interesting insight into the variety of war memorials which are to be found in the streets, parks and buildings of a typical English town, as well as a detailed account of the building of the town's "official" memorial.

SOMME BATTLEFIELD TOURS WEB-SITE A commercial site, maintained by James Power. James and I often swop battlefield visit experiences and his interest in the battlefields is very personal and sincere. You can tell this if you visit his site, which is informative in its own right, and not merely an advertisement for his business.

TRENCHES ON THE WEB A seemingly ever-growing site which covers many aspects of the war. You could spend a long time here. Much of interest, with outstanding visual presentation.

THE SECOND BATTLE OF THE MARNE A site which is being developed to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the 2nd Battle of the Marne.Much of the text is in French, but some pages are in English and the authors hope to produce an English version of the whole site in due course.

HUGH PEDEN'S HOME PAGE Hugh is a Canadian who plays in the Vancouver Police Pipe Band. His love of piping is obvious but he also includes on his site the Great War recollections of his Grandfather, William Peden, who enlisted in 1914 and arrived in Belgium in time to meet the Germans' first gas attack in 1915.

MAN OF KENT - KYLE TALLETT'S GREAT WAR HOMEPAGE I like Kyle's site because the things which interest him about the Great War are the the same things which interest me - what happened to people, and the places in which they happened. Seriously worth a visit.

THE COMMONWEALTH WAR GRAVES COMMISSION This is the national organisation charged with the responsibility for marking and maintaining graves and Memorials to the Missing of the "British and Empire" forces. The Commission's Royal Charter also requires it to answer enquiries about the location of graves and commemorations. There is a search facility on the site under the title "Debt of Honour."

THE FRIENDS OF ST GEORGE'S MEMORIAL CHURCH, YPRES Just behind the Cloth Hall at the centre of Ypres, stands St. George's Memorial Church. This is an Anglican church, built in 1927, as part of the rebuilding of Ypres, to meet the needs of the British Settlement in Ypres, which was considerable at the time. The foundation stone was laid by Field Marshal Lord Plumer in 1927. Just about every item in the church is a memorial to some unit or man. The church is now maintained by "The Friends" and this is their site.

THE WESTERN FRONT ASSOCIATION A long-established, UK-based organisation with around 5000 members world wide. The WFA has been producing its high-quality magazines and bulletins for its members for some years.

THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT'S DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS' AFFAIRS This excellent site has masses of information about Canada's involvement in the Great War. It's a "must see" site. It also has an excellent links page. It's a credit to the Canadian National Identity and is an Internet version of the strong Canadian pride which I've encountered time and again when visiting historic sites on the Western Front.

JOHN MORCOMBE'S RND/RMLI SITE John Morcombe was the source of much of the information used by Kye Tallett when he wrote his Hellfire Corner article on Pte. John Clegg, of the Royal Marine Light Infantry. Now John has developed his own site, which expands on the story of his Great Uncle Jack and contains further interesting articles on the Royal Naval Division and the Royal Marine Light Infantry in the Great War. There are also articles of more general Great War interest.

WAR GRAVES WEBSITES

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission: http://www.cwgc.org

This website gives details of the graves, or memorials to those who have no known grave, of those killed while serving with British and Empire/Commonwealth forces during World Wars I and II. Search is by surname (family name) and initials. Read very carefully the advice given about searching under 'Help'. When putting in initials, for example, use two at the most, without full stops (periods) and with a space between them. The 'Nationality' is that of the service in which the person served , not his/her own nationality. Irish people serving in World War II, for example, are included in British, Australian, Canadian or other categories, depending on the unit in which they served.

Geoff's Search Engine: http://www.hut-six.co.uk/cgi-bin/search14-21.php

This site allows searches of the CWGC database of WW I graves by other criteria than name. E.g. all those in a named regiment killed on a particular date can be found, or all those from a particular district.

The War Graves Photographic Project: http://twgpp.org/index.php

This project aims to photograph every headstone and monument in the C.W.G.C. cemeteries. Copies are provided for a fee.

British Culture and the Great War

The Modern Records Centre holds many documents which date from the period of the First World War. Just a small selection of these are shown below, organised into four sections - Military Service, Home Front, Pacificism and Opposition to the War, and The Immediate Aftermath.
Most archive collections at the Centre come from trade unions or employers' organisations, so, although we do hold some examples of documents written by ordinary combatants, the majority of our records relate to the organisation of the war on the Home Front. The anti-war beliefs of many in the labour movement are also reflected in our collections.

Photographs Of British War Graves Supplied Free Of Charge.

Welcome to British War Graves.


My interest in the Great War started when I watched the BBC series in the sixties but apart from reading a few books and watching the odd film I never got around to doing anything about it. Then while visiting my Sister in law in Holland I ended up in Arnhem and visited the cemetery at Oosterbeek which is the final resting place of over 1,600 WW2 Servicemen. I found the cemetery very moving and decided I must finally get around to visiting the Great War battlefields. The next visit to the in-laws was preceded by a trip to Ypres in Belgium. After visiting Tyne Cot, attending the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin gate and stopping my youngest daughter kicking around an unexploded shell near the Yorkshire Trench I was hooked. Since then visiting cemeteries and looking for the graves of servicemen and women both at home and abroad has become the norm.

Over the next few years, some like minded friends and I have collected thousands of photographs of British war graves & Family Memorials whilst working as volunteers for the British War Memorial Project. Working as a team we managed to cover most of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire as well as making trips to France and Belgium. The sad demise of the project has left us with a collection of photographs without a legitimate home. As a few of our team still intend to carry on photographing the cemeteries we visit, I decided a way had to be found to make the images available to others. This web site will hopefully be the means to that end.

I claim no grand designs for the site. The photos are available to all whether it is a family member looking for a photo of a relative's grave or someone researching their local war memorial who wants a photograph for their book. The aim of the site is simply to allow access to the collection.

If the photos are seen then the men whose graves are in the photograph are remembered. Job Done.

Mick McCann

First World War Home Front

For the majority of people today it is the horrors of trench warfare along the Western Front of Belgium and France that most characterise the First World War. But, largely forgotten, is the fact that virtually the whole of England was turned to the war effort: the first 'Home Front.'

As part of the 2014-2018 Centenary, English Heritage has initiated a major project to record the colossal 'footprint' left by the First World War on the fabric, landscape and coastal waters of England. You can find out more about that legacy in this section.

First World War Centenary

About the First World War Centenary

One hundred years on, we are all connected to the First World War, either through our own family history, the heritage of our local communities or because of its long-term impact on society and the world we live in today.

From 2014 to 2018, across the world, nations, communities and individuals of all ages will come together to mark, commemorate and remember the lives of those who lived, fought and died in the First World War.

IWM (Imperial War Museums) is leading the First World War Centenary Partnership, a network of local, regional, national and international cultural and educational organisations.

Together, through the First World War Centenary Programme, a vibrant global programme of cultural events and activities, and online resources, we are connecting current and future generations with the lives, stories and impact of the First World War.

Join us and take part in this global commemoration.

Quote:
Codehesive has developed an online resource which provides information about the number of Commonwealth soldiers who died during the First World War.

The interactive resource uses figures from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to illustrate the number of deaths in several ways.

A timeline spanning from 1914-1918 highlights the number of Commonwealth war dead from specific battles, but also cumilitavely as the conflict progressed.

Deaths are also considered by age, country and grave location.
