Pictured outside Holyhead Maritime Museum are four museum volunteers with one thing in common. They all lost grandfathers on RMS Leinster in October 1918.
Norman Williams’ grandfather was Engineer’s Steward Edward Salisbury Moors. Cousins Carys Roberts and Peter Scott Roberts lost their grandfather – Fireman Richard Roberts. Lamp Trimmer Robert Anthony was the grandfather of Eric Anthony (holding the model of RMS Leinster). Another volunteer, Lorna Johnson, unable to be present for the photograph, is another granddaughter of Richard Roberts.
We are looking to locate and make contact with as many relatives as possible prior to the Centenary Commemoration planned for October 2018. You can make contact by referring to the ‘Are you a relative?’ page of this blog.
