Tower Hill Memorial


Recommended Posts

Just to let those of you who keep an eye on this memorial that Charles Frederick Morris of the SS Alaunia has been removed from the Tower Hill Memorial as his grave in Liverpool has now been recognised as his true place of commemoration

Chris, do you have the name of the cemetery and the plot reference, so that I can update the buried list.

Best wishes

Remember that his name will not physically be removed from the memorial until the relevant panel is replaced - probably many years hence.

However, his official commemoration has moved.
