Our staff who died in World War One

Remembering the role we played and the work of the Fund is one aspect of our history. Another is the role of the brave inspectors who joined the army and were killed or injured during the First World War.

Many of our inspectors had been soldiers prior to joining the RSPCA and when war was declared were re-called to their old regiments like many other reservists in Britain.

This page remembers our staff who died in the First World War.
