Lecture – Wiltwyck Cemetery’s Titanic Victim: William Gwynne


Join Wiltwyck Cemetery in a lecture focusing on William Gwynne, a worker and victim of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, whose cenotaph is here within our grounds on the 112th anniversary of the tragic event.

Our presenter, Hannah Speregen, will cover Gwynne’s life before the Titanic’s sinking, the colleagues he worked with, and what the final moments were like for Gwynne and his fellow Postal Clerks before the ship went down.

This presentation will have amplified sound as well as a slideshow presentation to go along with these subjects.

This lecture will take place within the cemetery where Gwynne’s cenotaph is placed on April 13th, 2024, from 1pm – 2pm.

A limited number of folding chairs will be available but we highly encourage attendees to bring their own folding seats.

Rain Date: Sunday, April 14th 2024.
Please call our offices at 845-331-0199 to RSVP by April 12th.
