The Great Lifeboat Disaster of 1886

The Great Lifeboat Disaster of 1886


Supplied by North Meols (Southport) FHS.

One sad night in 1886 no less than twenty seven brave lifeboat men lost their lives off the Lancashire coast. This is the story of the 'Mexico' disaster, and the men of the Southport, St. Annes and Lytham lifeboats.

This publication includes over 30 photographs-many never before published, also gives personal details of the lifeboat men.
