The Memorial to the Engine Room Heroes of the Titanic is a granite monument located in St. Nicholas Place, Pier Head, Liverpool, England. The city of Liverpool is strongly associated with the ill-fated liner that sunk on April 14, 1912 after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic with the loss of some 1,517 lives. The RMS Titanic was owned by White Star Line which was founded in Liverpool in 1840, Liverpool was also the port of registry of the liner with the words 'Titanic, Liverpool' visible on the stern of the ship. 28 Liverpudlians were on board the Titanic when it sunk, including 13 passengers and 15 crew members, in total only 7 survived. The memorial on Liverpool's waterfront is dedicated to the 244 engineers that lost their lives in the disaster as they remained in the bow of the ship supplying the striken liner with electricity an other ammenities for as long as possible.
The monument dedicated to the hundreds of men who died during the sinking was designed by Sir William Goscombe John and constructed circa 1916, it stands at 14.6m tall and although it is most strongly associated with the RMS Titanic, its dedication was broadened to include all maritime engine room fatalities incurred during the performance of duty in World War I. The monument is Grade II listed.
