Merchant Navy memorial, Barry

This memorial was created in 1996 to commemorate the merchant seamen of Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan who died in the First and Second World Wars.

First World War

Second World War

Among those commemorated are two young brothers from Barry. Samuel Robert Bubbins was 16 years old when his ship was torpedoed and he died of exposure in the ship’s lifeboat in 1917. Albert Bubbins died aged 15 when his ship was sunk off Dorset in 1918. A third brother, Thomas Edward, was wounded in France in 1917 while serving with the Australian Imperial Forces.

Sarah Boulton, of Barry Island, lost her husband and a son on the same day in 1918, when the ship on which both men worked as firemen and coal trimmers sank .

More details about each of the individuals is available in Byron Jones’ books of remembrance. There are copies in Barry library and several other Welsh libraries and archives. The titles are: Book of Remembrance Seafarers from Wales of the Mercantile Marine & Fishing Fleets who lost their lives during World War One 1914-1918; and Book of Remembrance Seafarers from Wales of the Merchant Navy & Fishing Fleets who lost their lives during World War Two 1939-1945.

The memorials draw on research by Fred Hortop, whose brother Robert died in the Second World War. He compiled local Rolls of Honour for both wars in 1993. You can view copies in Vale of Glamorgan Council offices and at Barry’s central library.

Barry sailors are also commemorated by the Merchant Navy memorial in Cardiff Bay.

With thanks to Byron Jones, of the Merchant Navy Association (Wales)
