To commemorate the centenary of the First World War, Bedfordshire Archives & Records Service told the story of the people of Bedfordshire during the First World War through two online blogs.

Bedfordshire At War: From the Frontline focused on the war itself, with daily reports from the Front in the style of a modern war correspondent.  It will include a daily roll of honour naming all the officers and men of the Bedfordshire Regiment and Bedfordshire Yeomanry listed as killed on that date.

Bedfordshire At War: The Homefront looked at individuals and events across the county of Bedfordshire, with newspaper style reports illustrated where possible by contemporary photographs.

The Community Histories section of our website includes a Roll of Honour for the Bedfordshire Regiment during the First World War
