Butetown and Tiger Bay seafarers took a heavy toll during WW1.
The boarding houses of Butetown and Tiger Bay have long provided lodgings for seafarers when ashore.
During WW1, the number of overseas seafarers grew as the British men were called up to fight and many African, West Indian, Arabian and Asian seamen were hired to fill the jobs.
319 overseas seafarers that lost their lives to U-boat attack in WW1 were shown as having lodgings in these boarding houses.
The list records their last known address, name, status, age, date of death, name of vessel and place of birth.
