Teigh is one of 51 "Thankful Villages" where no one from there is officially recorded by the Royal British Legion as having died in the First World War. It is the only village classified as such in Rutland. However on the war memorial inside Holy Trinity Church in Teigh there is the name of William Haines who was killed in the Battle of the Somme. We have William down as coming from nearby Market Overton but it’s possible he spent a considerable amount of time in Teigh.
