    Default Derbyshire Memorial September 2018

    Just to let people know.

    There is a memorial and a statue being erected in Liverpool on the 15th September this year to the crew of the Derbyshire.

    It is being held at St. Nicholas Church, Liverpool, commencing at 1100 hrs on the Saturday.

    Some of the Bibby Line Facebook group are also having a small get together on the 14th and 15th in conjunction with attending the memorial.

    Has the Bibby company contributed financially towards this memorial? also will any members of the Bibby family be attending the service.

    Hi Lewis,
    Sorry for the delay in replying. I did not get any notification of a new post to this thread.

    Regarding both your questions, I have no idea. Sorry.

    More info.

    During the Derbyshire remembrance service to be conducted on Saturday, September 15th 2018 at 11:00, at the Liverpool Parish church, the Church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas, Lord John Prescott will officially open the new church gardens, Paul Lambert, O.B.E., the chairman of the Derbyshire Family Association, will unveil the Derbyshire Memorial, and John Barraclough, retired Bibby Line purser/catering officer, will lay a wreath on behalf of all Bibby Line seafarers, past and present.


    Plans are also afoot to commission a memorial bench(s) in memory of the untimely deaths of Maxwell Biggam, electrical officer, and Robert (Bob) Prescott, third engineer officer, who both lost their lives in 1976 in a Boiler Room explosion on board the Liverpool Bridge, later renamed the Derbyshire, during her sea trials.
