Plaque plan for old Falmouth Royal Navy sailors' home
1:00pm Saturday 4th January 2014 in News
The site of a former Royal Navy sailors’ home and hospital in Falmouth could soon be recognised with the introduction of a plaque detailing the building’s history.
For 104 years, between 1852 and 1956, the home and hospital was based at 3 Bank Place and took in sailors of all nationalities.
The town’s mayor, Geoffrey Evans, has been asked to consider whether it would be ‘appropriate and acceptable’ to place a plaque on the wall of the building.
He told councillors, inquiries would be made to determine who owns the building now and he would report back at a future meeting.
