Rutland Remembers is a tribute to the hundreds of men - and three women - who joined up to fight in the First World War - and subsequently lost their lives. Most were killed in battle. Their graves lie wherever the war was fought - in France and Belgium, at Gallipoli, in Iraq and Greece and in 14 other countries as well. Others succumbed to disease or came home badly injured and died of their wounds, in some cases many months after the war was over. Many of these are buried in Rutland churchyards.
Soldiers who became casualties in battle are buried near to where they died, or if their body was never recovered, their names are commemorated on an official memorial. Most of them are also remembered on the various war memorials across Rutland.
A hundred years after the war began, their names still stand out as a reminder of their sacrifice.
This website is dedicated to each and every one of them.
