In 1760, a group of like minded men gathered in Edward Lloyd's Coffee House in London formed the Lloyd's Register Society. Their aim, to ensure the seaworthiness and safety of merchant vessels. Initially only operating in the United Kingdom, demand for the expertise and services of Lloyd's Register surveyors meant that, in the early nineteenth century, the society began to operate overseas. By 1901, the Society worked in over 70 countries.
Join Charlotte and Max from the Lloyd's Register Foundation Heritage & Education Centre as they take you on a tour of the archive and collection, including material available on our website, and discuss the life and work of the Lloyd’s Register surveyor 1760-1860.
The event is scheduled for November 19th 3:00 PM -4:00 PM and is free to attend. To register please click here.
