Hi everyone joined this fantastic family yesterday just amazing. speaking of families, I hope the trawler community can help me ? My father David Massie had heart problems while fishing at sea.(he fished out of Grimsby) Sadly he died on 6th March 1967 aged 34 ( 4 days after my 4th birthday ) and was buried on the 10th March 1967 at Scartho road cemetery Grimsby, today he would have been 84yrs. I am trying to find out the name of the trawler/trawlers he fished from, I know this might be a big ask considering it was along time ago. If anyone can help I know it will be this wonderful family community, keep up the good work.

Thank you, god bless

David
