Tombstone Tuesday: Lusitania

On my recent trip to Ireland, a tour I was on stopped at a small cemetery outside Cobh. In the cemetery there are three mass graves for passengers from the Lusitania whose remains were never identified or never retrieved by relatives. 1198 people died, of which 148 were buried in this cemetery.

The Lusitania was a passenger ship torpedoed early in World War I. You can read more about it here.
