Merchant Navy Memorial, the Welsh Back, Bristol

The Associations’ Memorial on the quayside at Bristol, unveiled by Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, in May 2001 provides a place for peaceful reflection on the debt we owe to all those lost at sea in times of peace and war.

Services are conducted at the Memorial throughout the year to dedicate plaques and to commemorate Merchant Navy Day on 3rd September and Remembrance Day, the nearest Sunday to 11th November. See ‘Whats On?’ for details. All are welcome.

Plaques on the seats remember the names of  merchant seamen who sailed from the Port and have since crossed the bar. Should any member of the public have a relative who should be remembered in this way, please contact our Memorial Manager, Ted Williams or Gaynor Stiles, tel. 0117 977 9748 or 0117 973 1744
