Wigan and Leigh Archives Online

First and Second World War Records

Welcome to our First and Second World War resources.

Our Wigan Borough Online War Memorial is the result of a project between Archives & Local Studies Volunteers and Wigan Council's First World War Commemoration Fund.

The search function is now expanded to include Second World War servicemen and servicewomen.

You can search for individual people using the search tool or browse the newspaper reports. We will be adding more information to the resource over time and would welcome any new information or photographs you are able to send us about those who served in the First and Second World Wars.
