Newport Dock Disaster Memorial, St Woolos Cemetery

Photo reference number: 588

This impressive granite and bronze memorial can be found in Newport's St Woolos Cemetery.
The names of the dead are poignant - some were known only by their surname recorded in the pay book. Some were not from the Newport area but men looking for work as navvies and gangers, an itinerant population.
