50 years of eminent research, into     
hundreds of years of Naval history, documenting
thousands of Ranks & Ratings titles in use.

Ranks and Ratings in the Royal Navy (R.N.)

RN Ranks Ratings .com makes available for posterity detailed research records compiled by an eminent researcher of the many thousands of RN Ranks & Ratings titles in use during hundreds of years of Royal Navy history.

The research on this site is to be led by a snapshot of those RN Ratings "Extant" - in use - on 1st January 1731, grouped together in Branches. As the years passed, new Branches, Sub-Branches, and Ratings were introduced, and older ones lapsed. There follows an index list of the Branches and Sub-Branches of the Royal Navy, in order of the dates in which they were instituted. A description of the RN Ranks structure will follow.

Use the links on the right (when they are activated) for similar listings of the 3 allied services - RM Royal Marines, WRNS Women's Royal Naval Service, and QARNNS, Queen Alexandra's Royal Naval Nursing Service.

Branch titles below with research details available look like PDF icon image active links: research is not yet available for inactive titles. Clicking on an active link will open a new tab or window with a document giving the details of that branch or specialisation.

Please note that our documents are in PDF icon image Portable Document "pdf" format - see sidebar

Ratings & Branches

Ratings are generally grouped into Branches based on a trade - such as Shipwrights, Sailmakers, Stokers, and many others. We might have named our site "RN Ranks and Branches" to recognise this layer of specialisation.

Also, many of these Branches have Sub-Branches, an ill-defined second layer of specialisation.

Also known as Branches are the general groupings such as Military Branch, Medical Branch, Engineer Branch, which themselves contain other Branches and Sub-Branches. You, and your webmaster, may be forgiven for being a little confused at times.
