It follows a request from the county-wide WW1 Commemorative Group, led by Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire Lord Shuttleworth.

The new website, at www.LancashireWW1.org.uk, can be accessed via visitLancashire.com, it provides a listing of events taking place over the next four years, links to local community and museum projects, as well as to national databases such as the Forces War Records.

Lord Shuttleworth said: “This year, along with so many communities across the world, the people of Lancashire will be commemorating 100 years since the start of the First World War.

“Hundreds of events, stretching over the next four years, will mark this life-changing period in our history and it is our duty to make sure Lancastrians today understand the impact war made on families and friends across the county.”
