Edmondthorpe lies just over the Rutland border in Leicestershire. The church of St Michael and All Angels is now maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust and is only used for services on special occasions. William Rawding is buried in the churchyard and his brother Bert is remembered on his gravestone. The Rawding family lived in various Rutland villages, including nearby Teigh, before settling in Edmondthorpe. Ernest Knott was born in the village but he is not remembered on the war memorial in the churchyard. Ernest was working in Barleythorpe when he joined up and is remembered on the Roll of Honour inside Langham's church.
