The Great Lifeboat Disaster of 1886 Southport


  1. As a Fylde sand growner, the ship and lifeboat loss feels close to me. The family names of those who died on the St Annes boat are of people that I knew when growing up. The Lytham lifeboat rowed and sailed to the Mexico too.

    And I hope the show goes well.

    1. Thank you Phil. The performances (4) to date have all been well-received and we have plenty more lined up, well into 2015 one of which is at St. Annes Library, so do come and see us. gives all details.


I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
