TITANIC-TITANIC.com | Titanic Memorials: Engineers, Liverpool
Location: St. Nicholas Place, Pier Head, Liverpool.
The home port of Titanic and the White Star Line, Liverpool, commisioned a memorial to remember the heroism and devotion to duty shown by the ship's engineers, who remained at their posts operating electrical and pumping equipment to ensure that the ship stayed afloat for as long as was possible.
The design of the memorial was changed during construction to incorporate those mariners lost during World War I.
It stands in a very prominent position adjacent to the Liver Insurance Building, and it looks out across the wide expanse of the River Mersey, and the landing stage where once the very biggest of the White Star and Cunard liners would tie-up, ready to embark expectant passengers traveling to the 'New World'.
It bears the following inscription:
IN HONOUR OF ALL HEROES OF THE MARINE ENGINE ROOM
THIS MEMORIAL WAS ERECTED BY INTERNATIONAL SUBSCRIPTION MCMXVI
