In 1847 7,500 Irish people were buried in a paupers grave. Half were under 5. Does anyone know where this grave is?
On Clarence Dock gates:
The dock is so historical in that most of the Irish migrants fleeing starvation entered England via this dock. A plaque has been placed on the dock gates which says, "Through these gates passed most of the 1,300,000 Irish migrants who fled from the Great Famine and 'took the ship' to Liverpool in the years 1845-52"
Clarence Dock is still there, the indestructible granite quays and all. It
just needs digging out.
The outline of the quays canm still be seen.
