Preheat the oven to fairly hot 375°F (Gas Mark 5, 190°C).
Using the tablespoon of butter, generously grease a medium sized ovenproof dish.
In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, biscuits [crackers], sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon and orange rind and the remaining melted butter.
Place one third of the mixture on the bottom of the prepared dish, smoothing it down with the back of the spoon.
Cover with half of the rhubarb and sprinkle over half of the sultanas or raisins.
Continue making layers in this way until all the ingredients are used up, ending with a layer of the breadcrumb mixture.
Place the dish in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden.
Remove the dish from the oven and serve immediately.
