The Lost Story of the Ocean Monarch

Fire, Family, and Fidelity

Gill Hoffs

The Ocean Monarch was an emigrant ship which sailed from Liverpool on 24 August 1848 and caught fire off the Welsh coast, leading to the deaths of about 180 people. This account of the calamity explores the lives and circumstances of victims, rescuers and survivors, including a French royal, an American artist, and a heroic stewardess, as well as the dramatic subsequent search for an Irish toddler’s family.
