Titanic Town

Ken Marschall's awesome painting of the Titanic in her full majesty

Crosby, a small suburb of Liverpool, has had more than its fair share of interesting inhabitants over the years.

    With the recent attention paid to the film Titanic, I decided to revisit the homes of some of the main protagonists in the three greatest sea disasters of all time........    Titanic, Empress of Ireland and Lusitania.   Also Britannic

Also, the Weird Case of The Wicca Man from Blundellsands.


Coming Soon! The story of Commodore Sir Arthur Rostron (Carpathia) and his 30 years in Crosby.

New! New, a non-ship story: The Strange Case of The WAFFEN-SS MAN from Waterloo... New!

Background Music: "Nearer My God to Thee", allegedly the last tune played by the Titanic's band, who were all lost.

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

Nearer to Thee!

Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
Darkness be over me, my rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams I'd be nearer, my God to Thee.

Nearer to Thee!

There let the way appear, steps unto heav'n;
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
Angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to Thee.

Nearer to Thee!

Then, with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise;
So by my woes to be nearer, my God, to Thee.

Nearer to Thee!

Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I'll fly,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

Nearer to Thee!

There in my Father's home, safe and at rest,
There in my Saviour's love, perfectly blest;
Age after age to be, nearer my God to Thee,

Nearer to Thee!
