History

  • In 1941 the Empress of Ireland went down. Its intent was to arrive at Liverpool ,England, but sadly it crashed before it arrived. The fog was so deep you could’ not see any thing. According to my research, 1,015 people on board the ship were taken down with it or lost at sea . 175 of these were crew members , 584 were third class , 205 were second class and only 51 were first class . Only 462 were rescued .
