Great news! I've been waiting for the new (25th) edition of "Titanic Memorials World-wide Where They Are Located" for some time now. You'll be hearing from me soon, Brian (and from many others, I'm sure, who'll want to add this volume to their Titanic libraries).

I now have a copy of Brian's paper, and provide the following supplement
to what he wrote last month

This is an invaluable work, modestly described by its author as "[a]
listing of the memorials and grave sites/stones of both Titanic Victims
and Survivors." It is, in fact the product (as of 20 January 2011) of
thirty-seven years of collecting information from people in all parts
of the world; in his Introduction, Brian writes that "[o]ver 365 ...
people have, so far, contributed information" about more than 1150
memorials of various sorts in 35 countries.

The main part of the book is divided into two parts. The first is an
alphabetical listing of over 1,000 passengers and crew members, with the
location of their graves and other memorials, and (in some cases) the text
appearing on headstones, plaques, and the like. (There are also listings
for a handful of people who were not on the ship, but play roles in
Titanic's story, including Thomas Ismay, Herbert Haddock and three Lords
(Walter, Stanley, Pirrie, but not Mersey).) In addition to well-known
information (such as J.J. Astor's burial site and memorial stained glass
windows in New York City and Rhinebeck, New York), Brian has accumulated
information about memorials to less-well-known individuals, such as the fact
that ship's confectioner Ernest Farenden is named on his family grave in
Emsworth, Hampshire, and that Helen Mockler (later Sister Mary Patricia,
O.S.M.) is buried in the Sisters of Saint Mary section of St. Joseph's
Cemetery in Leicester, Massachusetts.

The amount of detail provided in this section about each memorial varies.
In many cases, only the name and location of the cemetery or memorial is
given. In other cases, Brian or his contributors have provided additional
details, such as the text of inscriptions, cemetery plot locations and
directions, all of which are dutifully included.

After 61 pages of the singled spaced, densely typed passenger index, Brian
provides a second listing, this one by geographical location. (Locations in
the U.K. are indexed sometimes by the name of the city/town (e.g., "Belfast"
or "Southampton"), sometimes by county name (e.g., "Lancashire, Birkenhead")
and sometimes by country name (e.g., "Scotland, Dalbeattie"); locations in
the U.S. are listed first by state and then by city/town (such as "New
Jersey, Jersey City") and locations in other countries are listed by country
name first (such as "Ireland, Balley Boffey" and "Australia, Ballarat").)
That aside, the geographical section very easily directs the reader to
locations of interest; I've learned, for example, that there are still quite
a few locations in the New Jersey/New York area that I need to visit, camera
in hand.

Finally, there's a "Part 3," a listing of the people from literally all
parts of the world who have provided information that's gone into this
listing, with an apology to anyone who may have been "inadvertently missed."

As to "technical details," the book contains 109 pages, printed on A-4 size
paper (a little longer and narrower than letter-size in the U.S. and Canada)
stapled at the left margin.There are only a few photos, reproduced in black
and white, but Brian provides links to several web sites where photos are
available, including ET.

A work like this one can only exist due to the dedicated compilation of
information by Brian over many, many years. It's not for folks looking for a
history of the ship, biographies of her passengers and crew, or the story
of her sinking, but for a directory of memorials it can't be beat, and probably
could never be duplicated. Highly recommended.
