Rossmore

Going through a few of my father's things, I came across a slip of paper in one of his Discharge Books, on which he'd written this:

25/3/41
SS. Rossmore
627 tons
12m NE of Godrevy Is.

I believe that the vessel was bombed and sunk.

Does anyone have any information on this, or any pics or details of the vessel.

Thanks
Andy

SS Rossmore.

My grandfather was part of the crew on the SS Rossmore.He was killed when the ship was bombed by German planes.Apparently he abandoned ship and the was machine gunned in the water.The ship was sunk just north of Godrevy lighthouse.

I've been researching my family tree and discovered that the husband of my grandad's aunt was the master of the SS Rossmore, Albert Roberts. He was died along with their son, Bob Roberts, when the ship sank off Newquay during an air raid. Initially I wondered if we might be related, but guess your Grandfather must have been the ship's cook (also William Bunn). This site had more info:
