Caption: Crew of The Cecilia

This memorial in St Paul’s Churchyard has always made me wonder why it is situated in Whitley Bay.

The Cecilia was a Sailing Barque which was wrecked at Lizard Point, Whitburn on 3rd March 1881 with the loss of her full crew of 10.

The ship was registered in Liverpool and owned by P. Nelson & Co (Liverpool) and had been launched from Preston during 1863.

She had left the Tyne with a cargo of coal and was destined for Valparaiso, Chile when she was wrecked at Lizard Point during a force 10 south easterly gale.

Iron built she was 49.6m in length, a beam of 8.55m and a draught of 5.66m.

The epitaph reads:  Erected by Subscription to the memory of Captain T.B. Nelson, Louis Smith, Knox Achausen and seven sailors of the ship Cecilia sunk off Souter Point March 1881, The sea gave up the dead ……….
