The internal plaque
THE RUTLAND COUNTY HOSPITAL
ERECTED TO THE HONOURED
AND LOVED MEMORY OF THE MEN
WHO IN THE TERRIBLE YEARS OF WAR
1914 - 1918
GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR THEIR COUNTRY
AND THEIR SOULS TO GOD
Today it is called the Rutland Memorial Hospital and it remains a much appreciated service to the community.
It is interesting to see that when it was being built it was:
The Rutland Memorial Cottage Hospital
when it was opened it had become:
The Rutland County Hospital.
There does not appear to be an on-site record of the men in whose memory it was dedicated but for once the dedication refers to " the terrible years of war"
