Memorial to James Moody (1)

Atlantic Daily Bulletin

St. Martin on the Hill, Scarborough

From Rev'd Anthony Stratford, SCARBOROUGH.

British Titanic Society Member Rev'd Tony Stafford a lifetime lover of ships, the sea and the Titanic has recently retired to Dulverton Hall, St. Martin's Square, Scarborough.

Opposite his retirement home is a fine pre-Raphacbite Church of St. Martin on the Hill. It is a place of pilgrimage for those interested in religious works of art and painting.

It should also be of real interest to BTS members visiting the resort, since there is a memorial tablet fixed to the Wall of the South Aisle that has a direct bearing on the Titanic tragedy.
Here is a copy of the inscription:

TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN AFFECTIONATE MEMORY OF
JAMES PAUL MOODY

6th Officer on the R.M.S. Titanic who was born in Scarborough on 21st August 1987 and went down with the ship on the 15th April 1912.

'BE THOU FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH AND I WILL GIVE THEE A CROWN OF LIFE'

It is understood that the Moody family were well known in Scarborough. I have been told that Jame's grandfather was a sometime Mayor of the town.

Scarborough is always worth a visit and if any BTS members are considering going there do have a look in the Church of St. Martin on the Hill and pay your respects to the above tablet.
