Class was the dominant factor in British society during the First World War. Working class men volunteered in huge numbers for the army. They were encouraged by their burgeoning trade unions, which actively supported the war effort and took an increasing role in government. Women joined the workforce as well as participating in protests. Radical ex-service organisations campaigned for pensions and for tangible commemoration of sacrifice. The working class presence became dominant after 1918, in recognition of their wartime victory.

Through the centenary period, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has been active in supporting a wide range of projects across the UK to mark the centenary of the First World War. These have focussed on a very broad variety of subjects, not just focussing on the military aspects of 1914-18 but also encompassing the impact of the war upon the lives of people and communities in multiple different ways.
As well as funding projects through established programmes such as ‘Our Heritage’, ‘Young Roots’ and ‘Heritage Grants’, the HLF have awarded well over 1,500 awards through the ‘First World War: Then and Now’ scheme. This is suitable for smaller-scale projects, with grants ranging from £3,000 to £10,000. The application process is streamlined and around two-thirds of the projects funded by this scheme have been first-time applicants.
