The Society was founded in 1938 to promote interest in maritime history and provide a forum for research, communication, collation of information and recollection. Click to read more about the origins of the society.
Members pursue research for themselves, the Society, the Merseyside Maritime Museum, in response to enquiries from the general public or they simply meet up to share experiences. Much of this activity is carried out in a friendly atmosphere at the weekly sessions. These are held in the Archives Section at the Merseyside Maritime Museum. See EVENTS page.

Presentations on a range of maritime subjects are given monthly (between September and May) by specialist speakers and members. See EVENTS page

Members also receive the quarterly Bulletin in which articles and papers of significance by members and others are published. Lloyds List has described the Bulletin as “hugely readable,” and the editorial team strive to maintain and enhance this reputation. See BULLETIN page.

About half of our core membership is from Merseyside and the surrounding area, with others located across the U.K., the continent and many reside as far away as Australia, Canada and the U.S.A.
