Tour Scotland Video Kelly War Grave Sleepyhillock Cemetery Montrose
Tour Scotland video of Greaser, Frederick Kelly, gravestone in Sleepyhillock Cemetery on ancestry visit to Montrose, Scotland. Frederick served with the Merchant Navy on S.S. Queensbury cargo ship and died aged 53, on the 6th of June 1941. He was the son of William and Emma Kelly. Convoys arriving from America or merchant ships with war supplies from the Empire bound for the major east coast ports could not risk running through the English Channel. Accordingly, they would collect in the west coast of Scotland deep water anchorages such as the Oban Roads, before moving up around the north of Scotland and starting the perilous passage down the east coast to the main ports. The SS Queensbury was sunk off Inverbervie in one convoy.
