SHIPBUILDERS DATABASE

Please add details of family who worked in the local yards. Please keep the Bio brief due to space constraints. Just a way to mark those who contributed to the industry that made Greenock and Gourock. There is precious little evidence of there having been heavy industry here but hopefully future generations will come to realise and appreciate their contribution
