Conflict and Community Project


Welcome to the 'Conflict and Community: Northampton Remembers the First World War' digital archive.


Northampton Museums & Art Gallery hold extensive social and military history collections associated with the First World War. The items illustrate life on the home front and the front line and provide an insight into the lives of soldiers from the Northamptonshire Regiment and Northamptonshire Yeomanry.


Here, you can browse through a range of objects, photographs, documents and oral histories relating to the First World War and add comments or share experiences with other visitors.


This archive was made possible by support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Royal & Derngate, Northampton Borough Council and Historical Archive at Northampton General Hospital.
