English Erect Cloister For “Titanic” Hero

Near the parish church at Godalming, a little market town on the banks of the Wey, not far from London, a cloister has been built to the memory of Jack Phillips, a wireless operator of the “Titanic,” who died at his instrument while flashing “S O S” calls out from the sinking liner.

The secluded spot occupies a plot 80 ft. square and is surrounded on three sides by an arcade. In the middle of the grounds, which is a veritable garden, is an octagonal lily pond.

Inlaid in the wall beside the water is a carved memorial tablet.

The Folks Behind the GG Archives

The GG Archives is the work and passion of two people, Paul Gjenvick, a professional archivist, and Evelyne Gjenvick, a curator. Paul earned a Masters of Archival Studies - a terminal degree from Clayton State University in Georgia, where he studied under renowned archivist Richard Pearce-Moses. Our research into the RMS Laconia and SS Bergensfjord, the ships that brought two members of the Gjønvik family from Norway to the United States in the early 20th century, has helped us design our site for other genealogists. The extent of original materials at the GG Archives can be very beneficial when researching your family's migration from Europe.
