Belfast Titanic Society

On Friday 15th April at 12 noon, members of the Belfast Titanic Society will gather at Belfast City Hall to remember those from the city who were lost aboard RMS Titanic in 1912. Wreaths will be placed at the Titanic Memorial, on the Donegall Square East side of the City Hall grounds.

Relatives of some of the men who are remembered on the memorial will participate in the short service. Members of the families of Thomas Andrews, Artie Frost, William McQuillan, Thomas Millar and Henry Creese will be in attendance.

Society chairman, Una Reilly said, “This year’s ceremony will be a simple one, mindful of the centenary of Titanic’s loss which will follow next year. However it is very important that we gather each year at the Titanic Memorial on the anniversary of the sinking to remember the brave men from this part of the world who stayed at their posts and carried out their duties as the tragedy unfolded.”

The society is building up to an international convention at the end of May which will mark the centenary of Titanic’s launch. Delegates are coming from all over the world to attend this event.
