WWI Belgian Refugees

Are you interested in the history of Belgian refugees in the UK during the First World War? Have you been involved in researching them in your local area? Maybe you have a family story that you’d like to share? If so, the ‘Tracing the Belgian Refugees’ project would love to hear from you.


The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and run by colleagues at the Universities of Leeds, Antwerp and UCL. In Autumn 2018 they are launching an online database with which we will be able to trace and record Belgian refugees who came to the UK in order to improve our knowledge and understanding of their experiences and legacies.

The database will be open access and populated via crowd-sourcing. This means that those who have found information on a Belgian refugee will be able to enter this information into the database themselves. To find out more, visit their website get in touch via email belgianrefugees@leeds.ac.uk, or follow them on Twitter: @FWWBRefugees.
