About the men

This site is dedicated to the men involved in the tragedy of 22 September 1914. If you are interested in information about them, please have a further look!

HMS Cressy

HMS Hogue

SS Flora

SS Titan

The British trawlers Coriander and JGC were equally successful, they managed to rescue also about 400 men. Tom Phillips was the captain of the Lowestoft fishing boat Coriander and George Jacobs of fishing boat JCG, also from Lowestoft.  I would be much obliged for members / readers to help me trace relatives of the crews of these ships too. If several members and/or readers may be able to help, so much the better; they may try and work as a team!
