As much as the SCEPTRE being 68 South Quay back then, I estimate this building to be number 63. A report from 1894 gives the building as the abode of Mr. Edmund Alfred Durrant, the sole owner of the British Sailing Ship "The Standard" which ran aground on Scroby the year before and was abandoned by Captain and crew for no apparent reason as the ship could have been refloated at High Tide, something a Court agreed but the ship was destroyed.

HHi there.



EA Durrant was my great great grandad. Just wondering where you found this info about him and his smack? Doing a family tree for my grandma (his grand daughter) and would love to give her as much info as possible. Any help much appreciated! :)

The Walrond Memorial Smack Boys' Home and Fishermen's Institute, on the Ballast quay, was erected in 1875: it contains all the necessary appliances for securing the comfort and accommodation of smack boys when ashore: the buildings are of a Gothic character, freely treated, and contain office, dining room, reading-room, large room for meetings, dormitories on the separate bunk system, rooms for the manager and necessary offices: it will accommodate 38 boys, each having a separate bed and apartment. It stood from 1875 until 18th February 1941 when it received a direct hit and was destroyed in a Luftwaffe bombing raid which took place between the hours of 03.00 and 05.44. That same night shrapnel from a German High Explosive bomb punctured and ignited the Gas Holder on Admiralty Road, which lit up the skies and until the Civil Defence and Fire Brigade bods cooled down and extinguished was a marker for the following German bombers. 28 HE bombs and 100 Incendiary Bombs hit GY that night, 6 falling on the Quayside, 1 hitting and destroying this building. This is what this beautifully constructed building looked like in the early 1900's

well all the pins seem to have disappeared, they are on the main photo so just put in a search for Yarmouth and find the photo there.

If you search for GREAT Yarmouth you get about 140 odd photos relating to the word GREAT. !!
