WW1 Resources: with data comes knowledge.

There are many websites dedicated to details of the First World War, many with interesting facts and stories contained in them. The Isleworth 390 Project aims to sit beside these established websites to offer an additional resource on how WW1 impacted on the people of Isleworth and to take a look into the lives of the soldiers recorded on the Isleworth Memorial.

Other websites can be found below with an explanation of how they can be used in conjunction with the Isleworth 390 Project website to offer you, the public, as much information as possible on the soldiers of Isleworth.

This site will develop over the centenary to help you discover more about the conflict, and where those who died are commemorated today.

The British Legion has launched a new website: “Every Man Remembered” from WW1, which also includes women.  With guidance from a video from Dan Snow, it asks people to commemorate or search for people to remember from its databases. It enables searches by name, date, area, local regiment. This is free to access and add to.
