Liverpool Titanic Memorial

The memorial commemorates the 244 engineers who lost their lives in the disaster. It was designed by Sir William Goscombe John and constructed circa 1916 and is a Grade II* listed building. 

While the Titanic and her sisters did not use Liverpool as their end point, the ships were registered in the city and the White Star Line was founded here in 1840.

The memorial is inscribed:

THE BRAVE DO NOT DIE

THEIR DEEDS LIVE FOREVER

White Star had their headquarters in Albion House, Liverpool. Commissioned by Thomas Ismay, it was designed by architect Richard Norman Shaw.

The Titanic Engineers are also commemorated in Southampton on the Engineers Memorial in the city.
