JAMES MANSELL - The vessels built for the Admiralty were given the names of the fallen men from the battle of Trafalgar, the JAMES MANSELL was one such named vessel.

 

In the early 1930`s the country was in a depression and with the high influx of skippers , mates and engineers that had come back from war service, there was a surplus of men wanting placement on trawlers. Several of the men on the Girdleness, who had been trawling all their lives had taken their first trip on this ill-fated voyage after several months of unemployment.

Harold Laverick - First trip after 5 months unemployment

Louis Burchall had a mates ticket but signed on as relief Bosun

Alfred Wilson was a qualified Engineer but been out of a ship for 19 weeks signed on as Trimmer/ Fireman

Arthur D Taylor - was a Chief Steward on Passenger Liners but due to the depression and been unemployed had to sign on as cook on the Girdleness.

Joe Saunders, was previously a crane driver and found it difficult to support his family on a low wage, so signed on the Girdleness

HULL TRAWLER WRECKED OFF FAROE ISLES

ENTIRE CREW OF 11 FEARED PERISHED

18 DEC 1931: The Girdleness, under the command of Skipper Ted George, 23, the youngest Hull skipper at the time left Hull on Dec 7th for a fishing trip. News was received at Hull late on the 18th Dec, that the Hull Trawler numbered H782 had gone aground and been wrecked off Sudero, Faroe Islands. It is believed that the entire crew of 11 had perished and corpses have been seen drifting near the wrecked vessel. As the news broke in Hull late last night, many of the Hull fishing community families spent an anxious, sleepless night fearing the worst. Presently it was impossible to reach the vessel and salvage was not possible. There is little hope that any of the crew have survived and the vessel is at the mercy of the heavy seas.  The Girdleness was due home in the next day or so for the Christmas holiday and as families prepared for the Yuletide holiday, the news broke of the disaster. There is the possibility of a gunboat searching the scene for survivors, but so far no actual step in this direction has been taken. Relatives gathered at St Andrew`s Dock early on the 19th hoping that better news would be forthcomming.

HDM Monday 21 Dec 1931 NO HOPE NOW :

A weekend of anguish and despair has been spent by the fishing community of Hull. Wives, sweethearts, relatives, and friends, of the ill fated Girdleness had been hoping against all hope that their loved ones would be saved, but their hopes have been shattered by the latest news from Sudero, near Thorshaven, Faroe Islands, where the disaster occured. The Girdleness the message states, has been broken in half by the fury of the waves and all the crew of eleven have perished.  Several of the inhabitants of the island were let down over the rocks by means of ropes with the intention of going to the assistance of the shipwrecked men, but they only found some lacerated bodies, the crew having been crushed to death against the rocks by the furious waves.  It is doubtful wheather the bodies of the lost trawlermen will be brought back to Hull for interment, although nothing definate in this direction has been decided upon, and information as to the actual recovery of any is at present very meagre. The painful task of breaking the news of the lost hope to the relatives was undertaken by Pastor J Summers of the Fisherman`s Bethel on Hessle Road. He embarked upon this unpleasant mission on Saturday morning. At the Hessle road Mission where one of the sons of a member of the crew is in the choir, special prayers for the relatives was offered yesterday. The service was not of a special character however, it being custom at the Mission to await three weeks after the news of any such disaster before holding a memorial service.

 

04 Jan 1932 HDM  TRAWLER MEMORIAL SERVICE:

LOST CREW OF THE GIRDLENESS: Extremely touching scenes were witnessed last evening Sunday 03 Jan, at the Fishermen`s Bethel, Hessle Road, Hull, when a memorial service was held for eleven Hull men who lost their lives when the trawler Girdleness was wrecked off Faroe Islands on December 18th. A large number of people gathered outside the Bethel some time before the service commenced and policemen were in attendance to keep the pathway clear. The mourners of the unfortunate men arrived in cabs and many of them bore evidence of great sorrow. SOBBING WOMEN: Actually there were two services. The first, at which the mourners and intimate friends of the lost men were present, was held in the upper building, while the second, of which large numbers of friends attended, was held in the lower portion of the Bethel. Both services were well attended. Mr J Summers the Bethel missionary conducted the former, whileMr H Deyes took the latter. One of the most sorrowful parts of the service occured when Mr Summers, in his prayer, gave the names of the eleven lost men. As each name was slowly read out, a burst of sobbing would come from different parts of the congregation. There, perhaps, was a crying mother, there a sorrowing sister, there a grandparent, there a sweetheart, there a child now without a father. BELIEF IN GOD: Following the singing of "When I survey the Wondrous Cross."and "There is a Green Hill Far Away." an address was given by Mr Summers. He took as his texts, "Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." and "Lo, I am with you always, even to the end." Mr Summers said: I think it is `unto the end` that we ought to try to grasp tonight. There are many things and many people that continue for a brief time, and we are apt to get into the way of thinking the Word of God is the same. One man told me last week: The Word of God is sure to fizzle out; but He stood before crowds and men who would have murdered him, and said "Come unto Me and I will give you rest."  Subsequently Mr Summers said, "I think of Jesus Christ as a fisherman and a very good fisherman. When the fishermen had tioiled all night and got nothing. He told them to cast over the side, and when they did so their nets were full. I wonder how many fishermen ever ask God to give them a good catch?" 

A voice: Never a one.
Mr Summers: I don`t think so.
Voice: Never a one. I have been a fisherman for thirty years.
Mr Summers: I can go back farther than that, and I think some of them do. I wish they all would, and I wish they would ask Jesus Christ to help them. Continuing, he said; "I don`t like the word `lost.` I don`t use it. There is no such thing as `lost.` we only go before." The concluding hymns were "Nearer My God to Thee" and "For those in peril on the sea." There were more touching scenes when the congregation were leaving.

Mail reporters went to the house of the permanent bosun of the Girdleness J W Doherty who had not sailed on the ill fated trip, due to a injury to his right thumb which had become infected and blood poisoned on the previous trip. Mr Doherty was speechless on hearing the sad news. He has had a lucky escape, and while deploring the loss of eleven gallant men, he was hardly able to realise his good fortune at the circumstances, painful as they may have been, which prevented him from sailing with the ill-fated vessel on her last voyage.  "I am lucky, aren`t I ? I can hardly realise it." he said as soon as he was told of the calamity.  This is not the first time he has missed death in such a miraculous fashion, but he declined to divulge any details of his previous experience.

I was sitting up with my sister, helping her thread beads for decorating the mistletoe. We had just had supper when I heared the paper boy shouting "Trawler Disaster". I then saw a paper and found it was the Girdleness. This was Harold`s first trip after been out of a ship and unemployed for five months, prior to the war he had spent almost twenty years on one trawler ( St Elite - Elite H714). and during the war he he was a member of the crew who succeeded in rescuing the crew of a sinking Norwegian boat.

RELIEF SCHEMES HDM 23 Dec 1931

Hessle Road people are known to be most sympathetic to any appeal for charity made to them, and on occasions of this description the rest of the citizens are quick to recognise the fact.

Councillor H. F . Edwards a member for the St Andrews Ward, made an appeal to the citizens of Hull to subscribe in as generous measure as possible to a fund which he proposed to open for the dependants of the brave men of the Girdleness who lost their lives. It was the intention to dispose of all monies received in relief to the necessitous families and not as a memorium. Non of the members of the crew paid the three shillings annual fee to the Royal Benevolent Shipwrecked Mariners` Society of which if they had done so, their relatives would have qualified for death pay and other benefits. It is understood that representations will be made to the Royal Benevolent Shipwrecked Mariners` Society for assistance and that help will be forthcomming from the Hull Fisherman`s Widows` and Orphans` Fund, to which owners and crews alike make make regular contributions.  The Fund which was started in the 1894/5 after the loss of several vessels in the North Sea, will relieve much distress, for the widowx of applicants for assistance are allowed 10s per week and children under 14 three shillings per week for five years, various extentions and allowances being granted. Another fund would be organised by Commander Griffiths of the Hull Trawler Officers` Guild for the skipper and mate, his efforts he said had been influenced by the fact that the skipper and mate were not covered under the Workmen`s Compensation Act, and the Guild  having already helped the relatives on Saturday. Other crew members would be covered by the Workmen`s Compensation Act.

Several Concerts and whist drives have been organised for the relief fund, with collection boxes been placed in many hotels and clubs in the city, with a willing band of workers offering their services as collectors. One of the first subscriptions was from Leicester, some of the first local subscriptions are listed at bottom of page.

HDM 31 Dec 1931  NO NEED FOR RELIEF FUND:

Although an appeal for finacial assistance for the dependants of the victims of the s.t Girdleness was launched shortly after the disaster occured there was really no need for it. This idea of a relief fund in times of stress is generally to be commended, but in the case of the fishing industry every provision is made to meet the contingency such as arose following on the loss of the Girdleness. In other words the fishing industry looks after it`s own people.

President Mr T. Hudson of the Hull Fishery Vessel Owners` Association Limited " In a letter to the HDM wrote, I have been asked," to remove a misconception in the minds of the citizens of Hull and district which has been created by several appeals which are beign made for their assistance to relieve distress amongst dependents of the crew of the s.t Girdleness, which was wrecked at Faroe on 18th December with the loss of all hands. Whilst the fishing industry appreciates the generous and sympathetic response to these appeals, which they realise were launched with the best of intentions, such appeals are both undesirable and unnecesary, and reflect on the people responsible for the conduct of the Fishing Industry. Every member of the crew of a fishing vessel (except the skipper and mate) are compulsorily insured under the Workmen`s Compensation Act, and in each case compensation is awarded to the dependents according to the scale provided by the act.   The Hull Trawler Owners have a mutual and voluntary compensation scheme for the benefit of skippers and mates and their dependents, under which the awards often exceed those provided by the act. " In practically every case a widow will also receive the state pension of 10s per week, and in addition, the whole of the dependents will receive the benefit of the Hull Fishermen`s Widows` and Orphans Relief Fund.  The Fund created in 1894/95 was to obviate future appeals to the public charity, and at the present time is in a very healthy state. Its income is derived from weekly contributions by every fisherman in the port, supplemented by an annual subscription from all the trawler owners, a substantial annual grant from the Royal Provident Fund for Sea Fishermen, and various items from other sources. The Fund is contolled by a Board of Trustees representing, all the affected interests, and is unique in that it has no administrative expenses. The rate of benefit payable to widows is 10s per week and children under 14 three shillings per week for five years and dependent parents 5s per week. In the case of the Girdleness the owners of the vessel paid a full week`s wages to the dependents only two days before Christmas, on which day also they received their first payment from the Fund. Although non of the crew were members of the Shipwrecked Mariners` Society, they sent to Hull within a day or two of the disaster a reported sum of £53 for the relief of the dependents. There is at present a substantial sum of money for one of the widows at the Seamen`s Union, who has not yet called to collect it.  It is hoped that the foregoing will demonstrate that there is, and has been no financial distress amongst the dependents. I shall appreciate the publication of this letter to show that the Hull Fishing Industry does its duty towards dependents of those who lose their lives, or meet with serious injury whilst following their hazardous calling.

HDM 05 JAN 1932: THE GIRDLENESS FUND

Councillor Edwards: Sir. - I beg to attach herewith a further list of donations received to date, and shall be glad if you will kindly publish same, together with the following. I beg to inform you that I was invited and occupied the chair at, and assisted by Mr and Mrs W.B.Whitmore, a smoking concert, held on New Year`s Eve by the Lister Recreation Club Ltd., 59 Lister Street, on behalf of the above fund, and I am pleased to state that in spite of the letter of Mr T Hudson in your paper of that date, the concert was a huge success. The concert was well attended, and the artists gave exceptionally good turns, and everyone spent a most enjoyable evening. A collection was taken which realised £2, a barrel of beer was raffled and realised £1.15s. This barrel of beer was presented by Mr W Whitmore, the representative of Messrs Allsop`s Breweries Ltd. A box of chocolates was raffled and realised £1, making a total contribution of £4 15s. Further efforts are being organised at this club for the benefit of the fund. CONCERTS IN AID By kind permission of the directors of the Hull Picture Playhouses, Ltd. I have been granted the use of the Langham Theatre, Hessle Road, for a Sunday evening concert, to be held on January the 17th, the charge for which will be returned to me for my subscription list. A grand concert will be given by the West Hull Excelsior Prize Silver Band ( conductor Mr F. Walmsley) and artists, the proceeds to be given to the above fund. A Grand concert has been arranged by Miss Myra Small, proprietress of the Strathfield School of Dancing, 2 Tyne St, Hull, to be presented by herself and pupils at the Victoria Hall, Hessle road, on January 19 and 20, commencing at 7.pm. each evening, and at which concert a gramophone recital will be given by Mr F.W.Smith, of 203. Hessle road. Tickets are 6d each, and are obtainable from the above addresses, and at the offices of the fund, 32 West Dock-avenue, and will also be on sale at the doors of the Victoria Hall.  Refering to the letter of Mr T. Hudson in your "Humberside Echoes" on Thursday last, in which Mr Hudson declared that there was no need for a "Girdleness Relief Fund," I am pained and surprised that this gentleman should have chosen New Year`s Eve as the occasion on which to attempt to wet-blanket a cause which every section of the public of Hull had associated itself in a willing and generous manner.  WHY APPEAL WAS MADE: I would also like to point out the the appeal was launched by me simply to endeavour to soften the blow which these unfortunate families had suffered during a time of general festivity and goodwill, and to express the public`s sympathy with them. My reason for making the appeal was considerably substantiated by the following, which appeared in your columns on Dec 21st last, and to which I now draw Mr Hudson`s attention: - Hence it is not surprising that enquiries have been made as to whether plans were afoot to alleviate in some way the material needs of those left behind. The answer is most decidedly Yes.  It appears strange to me that Mr Hudson should take exception to this fund when he mentions a contribution of £53 which has been received from the Shipwrecked Mariners` Society, an organisation to which he states no member of the crew has contributed, thus proving that this organisation, with its vast experience of the needs of the dependants in this and numerous other similar cases, consider some benefit necessary, despite the provision which the fishing industry itself has made, and this sum will, I am sure be none the less agreeably acceptable to the dependents. NO REFLECTION ON INDUSTRY: It is regrettable to me that controversy in any shape or form should have to be entered into with regard to an appeal of this nature, but I cannot under the circumstances, let Mr Hudson`s unfair criticism pass without comment, and quite contrary to his belief the raising of this fund has not been intended to reflect upon the action of the fishing industry in any way. I beg to point out that the contribution made by Messrs W.B.Wiley ans Sons, Ltd,. and F Cook`s Transport Section, which is included in my list, was collected prior to the launching of my appeal, thus indicating their feelings in the matter.  I am enclosing several letters which accompanied subscriptions, from which you will gather the genuine pleasure with which the contributions have been made. The fund is not yet closed, and I shall be gladto receive contributions at 32 West Dock- Avenue, Hull. COUNCILLOR H.F. EDWARDS - January 2, 1932
