Hull Trawlermen's Memorial

The 6000 trawlermen who lost their lives at sea will have a memorial built at St Andrew's Quay in Hull. The approval follows many years of campaigning and donations by the public. The Hull Council authorities will also allow the families and local trawlermen to participate in the design of the monument.

The memorial is intended to keep alive the memory of those who gave their lives to one of the most daring and honourable of professions, and offer a terrestrial symbol for all those who wish to remember the men lost to the sea and pay their respects.
