Paying respects to Cunard family in Liverpool, England


Joseph Cunard headstone in Toxteth Park Cemetery, Liverpool, May 2012

It may come as a surprise to some that founder Samuel Cunard has family buried in Liverpool, a city with strong historical links to his company. Joseph Cunard was a younger brother who, before moving to Liverpool, oversaw the Cunard family business interests in Mirimichi, New Brunswick which he ran under the firm name of Joseph Cunard & Company. He is buried at Toxteth Park Cemetery in Liverpool. The author visited the gravesite accompanied by Liverpool friend and former Cunarder Harold Woods in May of 2012. Many thanks also to John Harris and his wife Sue of Wilton, Salisbury (John is a direct descendant of Joseph Cunard) for their sharing of the family history.
