Steve Gardham Loss of all hands in the irish sea (53* d) RE: Loss of all hands in the irish sea 12 Apr 21

The loss of Hull and Grimsby trawlers in the Arctic during the 20th century were great tragedies for the area, but if you look at the shipwreck register for the 19th century on Wikipedia, ships were lost with all hands on an almost daily basis for a great variety of reasons, and in the great gales of the 1860s and 1880s the losses were colossal, up to 50 ships in one day. many ordinary seamen had little option. It was go back to sea or starve, and trust in providence.
