Suggested Life Stories

Before requesting a new Life Story, please follow these steps:

1. Check to see whether the individual meets the criteria for inclusion in Lives of the First World War: http://support.livesofthefirstworldwar.org/knowledgebase/articles/1164868-who-is-included-in-lives-of-the-first-world-war

2. Search for the individual on Lives of the First World War. Please see this page for tips on how to do so: https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/finding-a-named-individual

3. If you have information about an individual who doesn’t currently have a Life Story page, please enter the person’s name in the box labelled ‘Enter your idea’, and then post details underneath (‘Describe your idea’) with as much evidence as possible.

Evidence can be images or documents containing details about the person, website links, book references or genealogy records. If you believe that a person has more than one Life Story page that requires merging, please include the URLs.

IWM Staff and Volunteers aim to deal with your request as soon as possible. To help us to do this, please enter one request per post. Thank you.

We will accept requests for merges until 5.00pm on Monday 11 March 2019, and requests for creating new stories until 5.00pm on Friday 15 March 2019

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

        • Warrant Officer Class 1 Michael Thomas Bearman (service # T/9173)

          Merge https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5175469

          With https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/261618

          Please note that these are the same person, my grandfather Michael Thomas Bearman. You will see that his service number T/9173 and the fact he served in the Army Service Corps confirm that he is the same man. I assume you will wish to merge these two life stories. If you require any further information, please let me know.

                                  [I know this is a bit back to front but it has already been worked-up from the original Hillidge MIC to ILLIDGE by others - should allow for searching in both names if alias Hillidge is created and then merged]

                                    Then merge his alias into the new true LS [MASSEY]

                                    Thanks

                                    • New LS & merging of Alias required please: Austin/BROGDEN

                                      Please create LS for alias AUSTIN
                                      https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/373311/austin,-/

                                      Then merge it into the true BROGDEN
                                      https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/515040

                                      [Strange that MIC (BWM & VM but also a theatre date of 1914) and CWGC have BROGDEN as true, yet CWGC have Austin as alias too]

                                      Thanks

                                        Then merge it into the true BUCKLEY, John
                                        https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/305343

                                        [I know this is a bit back to front but it has already been worked-up from the original Bennett MIC to BUCKLEY by others - should allow for searching in both names if alias Bennett is created and then merged]

                                        Thanks
