The Crew of the Lifeboat "Alfred Corry"

During its service the Alfred Corry had three Coxwains: John Cragie, 1893-8, Samuel May, 1898-1918,

and Charles Jarvis 1918 for the last few months of the boat's service.

The crew were all local fishermen from Southwold who worked from the beach and were skilled at sailing and seamanship.
