About our Lancaster project

The parts of this site concerned with Lancaster were assisted by funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This project was a three way partnership between Lancaster Military Heritage Group, Lancaster University’s Department of History and Lancaster University’s School of Computing and Communications. It drew heavily on material from the Lancaster War Memorials website created by Lancaster Military Heritage Group which provided us with information about the men who were killed. We also wanted the stories and artefacts of those who lived through the War where they still remain within the town and held a number of events where members of the local community brought us their stories, letters, diaries, medals and so on that survive from that time. Some of these are written up under Community Stories pages of this site.
