Post Sinking of Haines Steamship Tresillian

I am looking for information from any survivor (or relative) of the MV Tresillian which sank in the Irish Sea on 30 November 1954. My half-brother Freddy Stevens was second mate at the time and his body was never recovered. I was only twelve at the time and have never really known what happened that night.

I'm sorry for your loss. I Googled "Tresillion Irish Sea" and came up with various items that may be of use. For some reason I could not get the ones I wanted onto this post.

Survivors

John,

There are currently 4 or 5 survivors from the rescued 16 although they are fading fast.

One lives in Auckland NZ (George Porter), One lived in Melbourne Australia, and another lives in the UK, Trevor (Smith I think). At the moment I can't remember the other two.

I've only found one living member of the rescuing ship Liparus, a Brian Winton.

Hope that helps
