What is the future of Lives of the First World War?

Lives of the First World War is a centenary project that was designed to coincide with the peak in public interest in this conflict, during the years 2014 to 2019. The legacy of Lives of the First World War will be a permanent digital memorial on iwm.org.uk, which will be free to access and search. This will be available at the end of June 2019.

To allow the Lives of the First World War team time to process the data before it moves to IWM, the website will be closed from 12.01am on Tuesday 19 March 2019. We will not be able to accept any further contributions of material after this time.
