The Walker Grave

Monday 18th January 2016

This morning Bruce was very pleased to show Nigel and Moira Walker the grave of Nigel's Grandfather, George Alfred Walker. George was employed as a Journeyman Carpenter for the Southampton firm of Shepherd and Hedger's (furniture manufacturers) who it's believed were contracted to do the fitting out on some of the state rooms on Titanic before she sailed from Southampton. George was asked if he would sail with her to complete some finishing touches but luckily he declined the offer. His name is inscribed on the kirbset and Nigel and Moira were delighted to see the grave and gave FoSOC a very generous donation.
