In Jhansi alone there were several thousand killed, we do not know how many, nor do we know more than the merest handful of names. If anyone knows any other names then write to me with the details and as much of the history as possible and I will happily add them to the list:-

  • Lakshmibai, Rani of Jhansi, killed at Gwalior
  • Moropant Tambe, the Rani's father, executed at Jhansi
  • Mandar, Lady in waiting and companion to the Rani, killed at Gwalior
  • Gulam Gaus Khan, artilleryman. (Khan, Moti bai and Khudabaks are memorialised together inside Jhansi Fort.)
  • Moti bai
  • Khudabaks
