About Patrick

Patrick Hopkins was born in Tawnyshawn, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland, in 1891, the son of Patrick and Ellen Hopkins.  He was a professional seaman in the Mercantile Marine and in 1915, he lived at 15, Walmsley Street, Everton, Liverpool, Lancashire, England.  He was single.

He engaged as a fireman in the Engineering Department on board the Lusitania, at Liverpool, on the 12th April 1915, at a monthly rate of pay of £6-10s-0d, (£6.50p.) and joined the liner on the morning of 17th April before she made what would be her final voyage out of Liverpool, across the Atlantic to New York.

He was killed when the ship was sunk.

As his body was not recovered and identified afterwards, he is commemorated on the Memorial to the Missing at Tower Hill, London.
