CWGC ‘How to research…’ Guides – The First World War
Explore our bitesize guides, designed to help you research an individual who died in the First World War.
These bitesize guides are designed to help you research an individual who died in the First World War. Firstly, you will need to decide who you will research… this might be a relative, or you could choose a name from a local WW1 memorial, or you might select a name from a Commonwealth War Graves (CWGC) headstone in one of our war cemeteries, or within a parish churchyard local to you.
These guides will take you step by step through your initial research, showing you how to search the CWGC war records and archives before making suggestions about where to discover additional information online.
