Ramsey to mark 100th anniversary of seaman's death

Mon, 06 Feb 2017

A minute's silence will be observed in Ramsey later to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of a Naval seaman from the town.

Alfred Kinrade was 21 years old when the minesweeper trawler he was serving on was struck by a mine off the coast of South Wales during World War I.

Seaman Kinrade was one of 10 children born to a Ramsey couple who ran two fish and chip shops in the town, while his brother was a former chairman of Ramsey Town Commissioners.

His family will place a cross at the town's War Memorial at 6.30pm and hold a minute's silence, which members of the public are invited to attend.
