The Sheffield Flood Victims
 -  Their Page -

This Page is dedicated to the memory of the 245 - 250 people who lost their lives
in the 'Great Flood' at Sheffield on March 12th 1864
 
Below is shown a memorial stone for the victims, which appeared shortly after the flood: unfortunately, this 'stone' never made it beyond post-card status; and, ironically, there has never been a memorial erected within the city of Sheffield to commemorate those who lost their lives on that fateful night.

This web page is dedicated the them.
