    Why does the archive state “1877-1987”?
    The Society is still active today and continues to care for widows of Lowestoft seafarers On a monthly basis.
    The comment I heard on Radio Suffolk today that the Fund ceased in 1987 was not correct.

      Hi Hugh
      Thank you for your comment. The 1877-1987 refers to the date range of the material that we hold, rather than the dates for the Society itself.
      I hope that clarifies things.
      Best wishes
      Judith
