I am looking for information regarding the names of RECOVERED bodies of passengers aboard the SS Princess Sophia that went down with abt. 300 people.All perished.
My grandfather was aboard the ship. He was a marine engineer employed with the White Pass and Yukon Route.
I am trying to find out if his body was ever recovered and/or was he buried in a mass burial of unidentified bodies.
FIRST RECOVERY - OCT - NOV 1918 Is there a list of the approx. 180 bodies that were recovered?Most of these bodies were identified and shipped to relatives. My grandfather's body was not among this recovery
SECOND RECOVERY - SPRING - AUGUST 1919 Another 103 bodies were recovered. Is there a list of these bodies recovered? If these bodies were unrecognizeable - was there a mass burial?
My grandfather's name was Peter Vint.
Does anyone know if a cairn was ever erected to commemorate this tragedy??
I am familiar with the two books written about the sinking of the Princess Sophia:
"The Final Voyage of the Princess Sophia: Did they all have to die?" by O'Keefe and Macdonald and
"The Sinking Of The Princess Sophia: Taking The North Down With Her" by Coates and Morrison.I have contacted both authors.They do not have lists of any recovered bodies.
