How to volunteer

Durham at War, our First World War centenary project, has included a substantial programme of volunteer activities from 2014 to 2018.

Visit the Durham at War website and see what a great resource our volunteers have created.

There are thousands of stories and transcripts that will stay online long after the end of the First World War centenary.

We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to this project since 2014, and to the Heritage Lottery Fund who made it all possible. 

Now the active part of the Durham at War project has come to an end, we're sorry that we are unable to accept any more project volunteers.

However, if you are interested in other volunteering opportunities at Durham County Record Office, please use the Record Office email to contact us.
