Recovered Mary Stanford being taken to London for examination.

I'm not sure that the comment that was in the photo album I got this from is correct and that this was taken following the disaster.

My mothers brother Charles Southerden (my uncle)was one of the crew that drown on that fateful night. The picture was that of the Mary Stanford after the disaster. The Mary Stanford was on 'display' at the Chatham Dockyard Museum in the 1980's.

Malcolm Stewart is wrong. Following the loss of the Mary Stanford in November 1928 she remained in Rye for the duration on the inquest. In January 1929 she was taken to the RNLI depot in Poplar (Limehouse) London where she was broken up.
