A single drowning and a major shipping disaster.

Bridgnorth Cemetery, Bridgnorth, Shropshire
(Click on an image for a larger version)

Although it is not clear in this photograph part of the cemetery is both overgrown and on a steep slope and it was quite hazardous surveying this section.

Mary Lousia Mulliner was drowned in the River Severn at Bridgnorth, Shropshire.

In July 1909, the Waratah, en route from Durban to Cape Town, disappeared with 211 passengers and crew aboard. No trace of the ship has ever been found.

If you are interested in seeing the bigger picture for which genealogy and cemeteries are just two small parts why not join the social history group on Facebook?
