Really every ship or any in particular? The term "survived" denotes no less than 143 warships, as compared to the 14 sunk. I'm sure someone can probably refer you to the ADM files in the Public Records Office for crew rosters.

Off the top of my head, the closest online is the list of every ship with it's Captain;

Default Re: Battle of Jutland: Complete Crew Lists

To the best of my knowledge there are no complete crew listings of Jutland vessels not lost.

There only a few methods of denoting that a man was 100% sure to have been at the action.

That he was wounded, Killed or taken prisoner.

That he was on a survivors list of a ship that was sunk. (picked up by friendly forces)

That he was commended /decorated for his part in the action.

In the case of sailors, having his original parchment is handy, as it will be stamped that he has received the Jutland bounty (if he was present) .
This notation of the bounty paid is NOT usually on the Admiralty copy records available from the PRO. On the other hand the records at the PRO for Marines, do note the Jutland bounty.

Other than personal accounts mentioning identifiable 3 rd parties , that's about it, for 100% ID of men present.

Cheers, Nigel

A group of volunteers have been compiling the crew lists of the 151 ships at the battle. We actually check the service records, and other sources. We estimate that the number of RN sailors at the Battle of Jutland to be approximately 58,000. We have recently identified 50% of these names.
I have recently started to put these names on-line at names will be added to this website on a regular basis.

A small team of volunteers are endeavouring to re-create the crew lists of the 151 Royal Navy ships at the Battle of Jutland. Service records, Navy Lists and other sources are consulted before a name is confirmed to have been at the battle.

Links to the crew lists can be found at:
