Probably the definitive site for finding detailed information about military subjects in WW1:

1914-1918.net

To find details about an individual soldier - the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (fatalities only) and the National Archives:

Commonwealth War Graves

National Archives

A vast amount of information, and an amazing archive of WW1 photos at the Imperial War Museum:

 

 

 

Visiting the Western Front

Accommodation: I usually use gites (holiday cottages), but I have used hotels, B&Bs, and campsites. Here are some recommendations.

http://www.gites-de-france.com/ the main enquiry site for gites. Good service.

http://www.theoldriflesofbazentin.com/ Highly recommended gite. Very rural.

http://www.le-gourmet.fr/ an inexpensive, but clean and welcoming hotel in Bapaume.

http://www.la-ferme-de-la-papote.com/ a B&B near Hazebrouck. Run by an Englishman!

http://www.talbothouse.be/en/bb/home Astonishlngly, you can actually stay in Talbot House, a haven for troops coming out of the terrible experiences of holding the line at Ypres. 

Museums

Albert, Somme http://www.musee-somme-1916.eu/ A personal favourite. Underground museum.

Arras http://www.arras.fr/tourisme/office-de-tourisme/carriere-wellington.html Former underground quarries used by Britsh and Commonwealth troops as a base.

Bullecourt http://memoire.pas-de-calais.com/index.php/fr/premiere-guerre-mondiale/musees-centres-interpretation/62.html?id_offre=PCUNPC0620006461 Excellent museum founded by a local couple, M. et Mme. Letaille. Check opening times before you visit.

Poperinghe (Ypres Salient):  Talbot House was an oasis of peace just behind the lines. Must see if you are in Ypres. http://www.talbothouse.be/en/museum/home
