Any trip to "Glosta" is incomplete without a visit to the memorial for our lost fishermen. The man at the wheel and all the names of all the fisherman that lost there lives at see. This truly is our heritage and worth take time to view and look through the names. If you have a little more time to walk... More

You cannot help feeling moved by this memorial to the men who gave their lives to the sea. In its 350 year history, Gloucester has lost over 10.000 seamen and this nice memorial honors them.

Was drawn to come and see the monument ever since the first watching of The Perfect Storm and finally made it. Your heart aches for all the names of all the men who died over the years, but it is such an incredible tribute to lives lived and lost. So glad we finally got to see it for ourselves.

It was a very cold, rainy day when I visited the memorial, which could not have been better, as it gave ample time to read all the names of those who lost their lives at sea. This is a moving memorial that merits your time and contemplation. I visited off-season, and cannot comment on how a visit might be during... More

I had my picture taken here 65 years ago. Don't know how they developed it so fast back then. If you go to Gloucester, you have to stop here.

The Fishermen's Memorial was impressive. So many men and ships lost at sea dating back to the 1700's. Beautiful walkway all along the water also.

If you ever saw the movie Perfect Storm this is where the men from the fishing boat lived and died and they are noted in the memorial here.

Every time I visit this monument I think about the time I was at sea and came back. Amazed by the amount of Italian familynames included on the roster of missing seamen. Good place to go to.
