Derbyshire lives through the First World War

Derbyshire's experience of the World War 1, and the sacrifice of the men and women who lived through it, has been commemorated by communities throughout the county.


World War 1 service members

Derbyshire Lives through the First World War details the projects that have taken place in the county and provides access to resources to help you remember the World War 1 in your area.

An exhibition to commemorate the war has been touring the county. You can view the World War 1 exhibition banners and find out how to request this exhibition, for free, for your local venue.

If you'd like to learn more about how the World War 1 impacted in your area, visit your local library. You can take a look at the local studies collection and use online local and family history websites for free. You can also see local World War 1 photographs on Picture the Past.
