Detail :

The CWGC data for George William CARTER indicates that he was a Donkeyman (engine room assistant) aged 36. His lodge record suggests he was a Chief Engineer who would have been aged 43 when he died. Perhaps the truth is somewhere in between. He was married to Ellern Carter of South Shields. The SS Ravensbourne (1226 grt) was defensively armed and struck a mine 8 miles SE of the River Tyne. Three men lost their lives, one of which was George CARTER.
