Sailor’s Society

Just discovered someone on my tree died at the Sir Gabriel Wood’s Mariners’ Home in Greenock. The home closed last year however it says on the site if you are looking for records or any information to contact them. Has anyone done so?

That's very interesting, I must confess, although I worked in Greenock for a time, I'd no idea of it's existence.
It seems that the Watt Institute has acquired the records from the Sailor's Society, so I'm not sure who you'd be best to contact.

If you do, do let us know what you uncover.
