"The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) has published its records for 1914 in a free online archive.
It shows that in 1914 alone the Northumberland branch helped 7,885 wives, 18,372 children and 2,322 other relatives of serving forces’ personnel, giving £23,839 in aid.

And across the UK and the British Empire SSAFA mobilised some 50,000 volunteers to help more than a million people in 1914.
The archive reveals the hardship faced by families at the time. Every town is listed, with the number of people helped, the types of cases and the organisations and benefactors involved."

After a question from Dawne Slater-Putt, I realized a new category was necessary. 42 links are now available:
