Question Family History

A plaque in Giggleswick parish church tells of the death of Robert HARTLEY who fell to his death from the mast of the "Queen of the Seas" in 1865. No further information on the plaque.
It would be very interesting to find an image of this ship & any other details.
Can anyone help?!

Hello, I have some very old Sea Breezes from 1928 -1934. The magazine then was the magazine of the PSN Co. There seems to have been two Queen of the Seas. A contributor was asking about one vessel named Queen of the Seas, the reply contained the following reference: - a wood ship 1400 tons with this name was built 1852 and went missing in 1862. The other ship which may be the one in your case was built in St John N.B in 1854 1649 tons and owned by Joshua Prowse of Liverpool. I will look for further references. Cheers, Roger

Hello,
There were two British registered vessels with the name QUEEN OF THE SEAS around in 1865.
One registered in Liverpool, official number 26385. The other in Hong Kong O/N 41285. There were several others with the name QUEEN OF THE SEA
There should be details in the Deaths at Registers available from the Pay to view site Find my Past. That said you may only get a simple form of the reasons for his demise. IE "Fell from Mast". Search FMP first if only to find the correct vessel.
If it's No Go. The vessels Logbook may give a fuller explanation. Available from NMM Greenwich.
