About Patrick

Patrick Brown was born in Mayo, County Mayo, Ireland in 1891, the son of Mr and Mrs Patrick Brown. The family home was at Kilboyne.

He signed on as a trimmer in the Engineering Department on board the Lusitania at Liverpool, on 12 April 1915 for what would be the liner’s last ever voyage to America and reported for duty at 8am on 17 April, the day she left the River Mersey. As a trimmer, his monthly rate of pay was £6-0s-0d and upon engagement he was given an advance on his pay of £1-0s-0d. It was not his first voyage on the Lusitania.

Patrick Brown was killed when the liner was sunk. He was aged 24.

His body was not recovered and identified afterwards and as a consequence his name is embossed on one of the Lusitania panels on the Mercantile Marine War Memorial at Tower Hill, London.
