The Battle of Jutland was a naval encounter between the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet under Admiral Sir John Jellicoe and the Imperial German Navy's High Seas Fleet under Vice-Admiral Reinhard Scheer on 31st May to 1st June 1916.  
A small group of volunteers are endeavouring to re-create the crew lists of all of those at the Battle of Jutland on the 151 Royal Navy ships. 
A sailor is only confirmed to have been at the battle when his service records or other sources are checked and it is identified that he was on a 'Jutland Ship' over the period 31st May to 1st June 1916.

The 'Lives of the First World War (LOTFWW)' project is being used to gather the confirmed information into one place. Each ship has its own 'Ship Community' that can be viewed via the 'LOTFWW communities' section of this website.

This website is primarily based on two sections. The  'JCL sheets' are the tracking sheets for the project. They contain names of those sailors confirmed at the battle and also those who might have been at the battle. The 'LOTFWW communities' section contain only those that have been confirmed at the battle and are contained within a 'Ship Community' associated with the 'LOTFWW' project.

For full details on how the project is managed please see the section 'research approach'

The volunteers are providing updates on a very regular basis.  The table below is a live update on the status of the project.

If you would like help in locating someone that you believe might have been present at the battle then please email
