GM1914 is a joint volunteer project between the archives and local studies services across Greater Manchester. 2014-18 was the centenary of the First World War. This devastating conflict had enormous impact upon the lives of local people.
In Greater Manchester we have remembered the impact of the Great War on our communities and our people by exploring the archives and discovering over 200 stories from the armed forces and the home front.
GM1914 was edited and co-ordinated by Nicky Crewe, Becky Farmer and Dylan Lawson thanks to the generous funding of the Heritage Lottery Fund and The National Archives, as part of the Skills from the Future project.
