Stories of Those Who Served As the worldwide centre of excellence in surname studies, members of the Guild of One-Name Studies research thousands of surnames and have a wealth of stories about those individuals who have served their countries. This platform enables Guild members to share the stories from their research, whether from their One-Name Study or beyond, from soldiers serving in the trenches to accounts relating to civilian life during times of conflict. These stories are available to be read by all and are searchable by name or other known facts to filter the stories of particular interest. Any individual who served may be commemorated on this site except for those still living. In recognition of 2014-2018 being the Centenary of the First World War, the Guild of One-Name Studies is delighted to be a member of the Imperial War Museum (IWM) First World War Centenary Partnership. As members of the Centenary Partnership we will be part of the IWM’s global programme of cultural events and digital platforms to help people discover more about life in the First World War.
