This book discusses memorials - stained glass windows, church, cemetery and public monuments - commemorating British seafarers, shipbuilders and victims of shipwreck from the sixteenth century to the present. Examples have been chosen mainly from Great Britain and Ireland with a few from wider afield. They include important works by major British artists as well as more modest productions by anonymous carvers. The book retells the dramatic stories behind them, illustrating significant social and cultural changes in Britain's relationship to the sea. Memorials vividly illustrate the hazards of seagoing life and the impact these had both upon the family of the deceased and the general public. The book has a cultural historical focus. Each chapter includes case studies of both high status and popular memorials, showing how iconography such as the depiction of the wrecked ship was widely transmitted. The book covers both naval and commercial aspects of seafaring and includes memorials to naval officers, merchants, explorers, fishermen, leisure sailors, victims of shipwrecks and lifesavers, with around 100 illustrations of memorials.

Review:

There is vast knowledge on show here, and much detailed description of the monuments themselves. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MARITIME HISTORYTomlinson's book triumphs (bringing) to the fore those lesser-known individuals by whose sacrifice our lives have been improved. CHURCH MONUMENTS The commemoration of the past in public sculpture seems to be continuing unabated, and this useful work will serve to draw the attention of readers to some of its most interesting and significant examples. REFERENCE REVIEWS This book not only fills a yawning gap in the literature, it is extremely interesting reading and highly recommended. THE NELSON DESPATCH Barbara Tomlinson...writes with authority and in a very readable way. I recommend this book as a good addition to anyone's library. MAUSOLUS
