The remaining army records for soldiers from the World War I period are known colloquially as the burnt records. About 60% of them were destroyed by enemy action in World War II. The remainder are in poor condition as is only too obvious when the scanned versions are inspected at TNA where they form class WO363. Records for RUDDERHAM can be found in Piece (or microfilm) R1504 and for RUDRAM in Piece R1625. There no surviving records for RUDERHAM or RUDRUM. Comparison of these names with those on the CWGC Debt of Honour shows that the records for 5 out of the 8 army fatalities are missing. There is likely to be a similar proportion of survivor records missing. The amount of family information available is highly variable. An extended summary of the information is available by clicking on the bullet in the first column, many of the records are difficult to read and careful study may enable you extract more information.
