Liverpool Titanic Musicians MemorialLocation: The Philharmonic Hall, Hope Street, Liverpool, Merseyside, L1 9BP.

A fitting memorial to Titanic's eight bandsmen is a carved plaque located at Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall, home of the world-renowned Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

It was unveiled on 4th November, 1912, and has stood the test of time well, as the original Philharmonic Hall was destroyed by fire in 1933.

A new hall opened six years later, and somehow, the building and the plaque within survived the heavy bombing of the Luftwaffe during World War 2, despite nearby buildings being totally obliterated.

 

(Can you spot the mistake on the plaque? No? Look at the date for a clue!)
