WWI Project

Rugby Memorial Gates

In 2014 Rugby Family History Group celebrated its 30th anniversary.

Since this coincided with the centenary of the start of the First World War, we decided to start a special project on local War Memorials

We are making a collection of Names listed on War Memorials in the Rugby area, publishing the names as listed We will add extra information as we discover it.

If you have any information on Rugby people, or those from the surrounding Villages, who served in the First or Second World Wars, please contact the Webmaster. If you know of information already collected, we can add a link to it.

Men listed on the Rugby Memorial Gates are being researched by volunteers and published on the centenary of their death on our RugbyRemembers Blog. This includes articles on major military actions involving "our" men and a weekly look at the news in Rugby transcribed from the Rugby Advertiser.

If you are researching a man who died, here is a useful guide.
