Wales at War


Can you help us to remember and find out more about the ordinary Welsh men and women of the First World War commemorated on local war memorials in Wales?

Wales at War is a digital resource for everyone with an interest in the First World War and its impact on Wales. The project’s aim is the collect the histories of the 40,000 or so Welsh men and women – soldiers, sailors, airmen, nurses and civilians, who lost their lives as part of the war effort in Wales. With your help, we hope to capture as much information as possible on these people before the end of the centenary so that we may begin to better understand the true effect of the War on Welsh society and culture.

The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Welsh Government Department for Education and Skills, and the Armed Forces Community Covenant Fund. It is a partnership between the National Library of Wales, Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, and the Royal Navy.
