Ahead of Remembrance Day use our search tool to find ancestors or people from your area who died in WW1.
The database allows you to search more than one million First World War casualties.
The data comes from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC), who have kindly allowed BirminghamLive to share the astonishingly rich data that they have painstakingly put together over the years.
It includes all soldiers who died from the UK, soldiers from Ireland who fought as part of the British Army and soldiers from further afield who also signed up and lost their lives in the conflict.
Peter Francis, spokesperson at the CWGC, said: “This data is a window into the past.
“It helps put a human face to the names engraved on memorials all over the world and allows families to reconnect with their ancestors.”
Search for your relatives and those from your area who died in the battle and the Great War with the tool above.
Our unique gadget allows you to search the archives of over one million casualties of the First World War.
You can search by any combination of first name (or initial), surname, street or town/city.
You don’t have to fill in all the boxes – you can fill as many or as few as you can.
The database allows you, for example, to search for people with the same name as you, who came from the same city; or just to see who died from the street where you live.
