STAND’s Memorial to Hull’s Lost Trawler men commissioned, installed and blessed at the Memorial site on St. Andrews Quay by the Dr. John Sentamu the Archbishop of York on 12th February 2017 at the 28th Annual Lost Trawlermen’s Day Service.
The memorial figures were designed and sculptured by local man Peter Naylor and constructed by W. Campbell & Son of Hull.
The figures are made of Corten steel which when weathered assumes a rusting effect without any deterioration of the metal. Each figures is approximately eight (8) feet tall. Their facial features are not intended to represent any individual.
In 2018 the Environment Agency will begin flood defence work along the River Humber frontage which will include the Memorial site.
Throughout the period of this work the Memorial figures will be temporarily removed and re-sited within the EA’s defence work. At this time the whole of the Memorial site will be landscaped and completed.
It is hoped that this Memorial will become a place of remembrance to which relatives of those lost and the general public can visit and pay their respect to the thousands of men who were lost.
