Three photographs taken at the funeral of Henry Andersen at Leith in June 1940.

The ashes of Dr Peter Barker were scattered off Hope Point by his wife Jenny on 5 November 2015. They joined the seas that he had dedicated so much of his life to studying.

Thanks to Geir Rosset for the photograph, taken in or around 1917 by a crewmember of factory ship Thor I, of the Husvik cemetery.

Thanks to Arne Hansen for pointing out that Fensmark is in Denmark and not Norway. The table on the page for Martin L C Rasmussen has been updated accordingly. The Register of Deaths also gives his nationality as Danish.

A message from Angus Robertson's great great nephew tells us that he was born in Newry, Ireland in 1898. His mother and father had moved from Scotland to Ireland in 1987.

Angus is buried in Stromness cemetery but we have no information about which grave.
