Imperial War Museum of the United Kingdom (UK) on 11 May 2014 launched an ambitious online database of the World War-I (WW-I). The website was launched to mark the 100th anniversary of WW-I. The online database will help remember the lives of the millions of men and women who served in WW-I.

The online database titled Lives of the First World War so far features records for 4.5 million people who served with Britain's army overseas. The records have been pulled together from existing archives and family collections.

The museum aims to add millions more records over the next months to include people who served with forces from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India, as well as conscientious objectors and home front workers.
