Lives of the First World War brings together a unique package of First World War records from museums, libraries and archives across the world. We will be adding many more records throughout the centenary so you can search them all in one place. 

Some of the records are free to view, but there is a charge to view premium records. 

You can explore the platform for free. To add to a Life Story, you need to register for a free account and become a Member of Lives of the First World War. 

To access premium records and special features, you need to subscribe to Lives of the First World War. However, if you wish to refer to records you have found in other platforms without becoming a Friend, you can do so. You can do this by adding links directly to the relevant record or web page as an external reference - find out more about how to add evidence to a Life Story.

However, you cannot upload digital images from commercial services or some other archives for copyright reasons.
