Roll of Honour

Hartlepool seafarers lost at sea

Aves, J E

3rd Engineer
Alma Street, Hartlepool

Son of Thomas and Elizabeth Aves.
Lost on the steamship Hartlepools

Northern Daily Mail 28 December 1888:
Mr Aves, the third engineer, who was among those drowned, was, as we have already reported a son of Mr T Aves, of Alma Street, Hartlepool, late member of the Liberal Club, and he was himself a member of the club. He was a promising young fellow and the ill-fated voyage was his first and last one. When the lifeboat went down he clung to the tackle and Captain Race grasped him, but at that moment the vessel settled down, Captain Race lost his grasp and the unfortunate young fellow was washed away and drowned.
