The Tyne Cot Memorial is a series of panels at the back of Tyne Cot Cemetery. It records the names of 35,000 men whose bodies were either never recovered or were not positively identified, including 24 Rutlanders, in the Ypres Salient. Names which appear here are men who died after 16 August 1917, most of them in the Third Battle of Ypres (Paschendaele). All those who died in the area before that date are remembered on the Menin Gate in Ypres. The New Zealand Memorial is in the centre of the panels.

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.
