The Rutland Remembers project is dedicated to the hundreds of men - and three women - from Rutland who joined up to fight in the First World War - and subsequently lost their lives.

Our aim is to learn more about their lives and to visit every grave and memorial wherever they may be.

Our website project has been generously funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, however the project has no expiry date and we would be grateful for any support, whether you get involved with the project or feel you can contribute to the ongoing costs of the project.

Rutland Remembers is a not-for-profit organisation and every penny received goes back into the project remembering those that gave their lives for our future and any excess will be donated to a number of World War 1 related charities including the Poppy Appeal.

Thank you.

Rutland and The Battle of the Somme

More than 90 Rutland soldiers died in the Battle of the Somme which lasted from 1 July 1916 until the middle of November. Today they lie in cemeteries across the old battlefield in northern France or are remembered among the 72,000 names on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme. By using our interactive map, you can find out what happened to them.
