The home port of Titanic and the White Star Line. Liverpool commissioned the Titanic memorial to commemorate the heroism shown by the ships engineers, who remained at their posts operating the ships electrical and pumping equipment to ensure that the ship remained afloat for as long as was possible. The memorial also incorporates a tribute to mariners lost at sea during World War I.
It stands proudly on the Pier Head. Because this is near the location of the landing stage where once passengers for White Star and Cunard liners would have embarked for their journey to the New World.
