Denis Kehoe was born in 1894, the son of Peter and Julia Kehoe. The family home was at 86, Leeds Street, Vauxhall, Liverpool, Lancashire.
He engaged as a trimmer in the Engineering Department on board the Lusitania at Liverpool on 12th April 1915, at a monthly wage of £6-0s-0d. and joined the vessel at 8 a.m., on 17th April, before she sailed out of the River Mersey for the final time.
He was killed, three weeks later when the vessel was torpedoed and sunk. He was aged 21 years.
As his body was not amongst those recovered and identified afterwards, his name is embossed on the Mercantile Marine Memorial at Tower Hill, London.
