    I am researching the sinking of SS Persia off Crete on 30th December 1915. The Persia’s Captain was William Henry Selby Hall, who was born on 13th September,1858 in Greenhithe, Kent, son of Walter Rowland Hall, RN Captain and his wife Mary(?). His birthplace was just across the River Thames from Tilbury Docks, from where he would later sail regularly as a P&O Captain. William and his wife had one son in 1891, who died aged only 21 and who is buried in Portslade, Cemetery, East Sussex. Captain Hall was one of 343 people who died in the torpedo attack by U38.

    If anyone has any information about him and his family that they would be willing to share, I would be very grateful. He is proving quite elusive at the moment!

    Kind Regards
