Iolaire Listings

This listing shows all on board HMY Iolaire at 1.55 am on 1 January 1919, grouped by village where the men came from. The list of casualties is shown first, then survivors (if any of either).

The list was compiled by Malcolm Macdonald of the Stornoway Historical Society in February 2006, amended August 2007.

A full list of names can be viewed here.

Hi There,

My name is Alan McKim and I have family in Stornoway. A friend and I were visiting there recently and upon my return I wrote a song with a man called John Beck about the Iolaire disaster. This is a story which truly moved me as I began to research further. I sincerely hope that all those who are in any way connected to those who perished, like what we created.

The song can be found on my MySpace page at

The track is entitled, 'Stornoway'.
