First World War Centenary Website now includes stories about some of the Rayments that served

The Rayment Society is an international not-for-profit organisation devoted to researching the genealogy and family history of everyone with the surname Rayment (or variants such as Raiment, Raymant, Raymond and Raymont etc.) or the forename Rayment.


The surname, together with its variants, is officially registered at the Guild of One-Name Studies, the world’s premier organisation for this type of research.   Anyone with a legitimate interest in one or more of the surnames being studied is welcome to apply for membership of the Society, even if they do not wish to carry out any of their own research.
