Parliament and the First World War

Parliament is commemorating the centenary of the First World War. You can find all our historical and educational resources here as well as all the latest news and events surrounding the centenary.

Lives of the First World War

Parliament has partnered with Lives of the First World War to help bring material from museums, libraries, archives and family collections from across the world together in one place. Help IWM link together items you may have to start telling the stories of those who served in uniform and worked on the home front.

Memorials

The Parliamentary estate has many memorials commemorating members of the House of Lords, the House of Commons and the staff employed by Parliament who have given their lives in service of their country at times of war and other conflicts.

Medals and Coins

The House of Commons collection of medals and coins has been built up over the last 100 years and is substantially formed by donations from three Members of Parliament
