  1. Hello
    I see you have an article about the 1924 Lytham Train Disaster. Is there anyway I can find out who the deceased were as I think a relative of mine may have been involved?
    Thank you

    • Hi Christine. I dont have that info to hand. However you could look in the local Newspapers – Lytham St Annes Express, the St Annes Library may also have a list of names and some details as well as the Newspapers of the time, or at least the articles. Best of luck. Mike

      • Hi Mike
        Thanks for replying.
        I wish I could check the papers but I’m in Australia so that’s going to be a bit tricky – unless they have them online too, but I’ve not had much luck so far.
        Thanks again I appreciate it.
        Kind regards
        Christine

      • Hi. Thank you so much. If you do get a chance that would be wonderful – however if you don’t then the thought is still much appreciated. No I’m in no hurry 🙂
        Thanks again, Christine

    • Hi AMC. A million thanks. The info on the Lytham Rail Disaster casualties is really interesting. Sadly, this posting only shows up on the ‘About’ page. May I use the information to extend my original posting? I also have some more info about Capt Graeme taken from Newspaper reports of the Bardic going aground. CdrMike

      • Of course you can Mike! I found this completely by chance but obviously the connection is to White Star re: Capt. Graeme, so that’s why it was on their site. Hopefully Christine will see this soon…
