Lifeboat Disaster Memorial, St Annes-on-Sea
Lifeboat Disaster Memorial, St Annes-on-Sea
This memorial was erected, in 1888, to commemorate all 13 Lifeboatmen, from the St Annes-on-Sea Lifeboat - the Laura Janet - who died whilst trying to save the crew of a German ship called the Mexico in December 1886. A further 14 lifeboatmen, out of a crew of 16, from the Southport Lifeboat Station, also died in the same incident. The crew of the Mexico were eventually saved by the Lytham Lifeboat. This disaster led to the RNLI starting street collections for donations. The memorial is designed so that the Lifeboatman is looking out to the spot where the Mexico had run aground.
