Marchioness Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Erected in 1990, the memorial stone in Southwark Cathedral pays tribute to the 51 lives lost in the Marchioness boat tragedy. On August 20, 1989, more than 130 passengers were on the pleasure boat Marchioness when it collided with a dredger, the Bowbelle on the River Thames and sank near Southwark Bridge. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
