The Iceland cross marking a Great Yarmouth man's death

Angela Briggs

A visitor to Reykjavik in Iceland found a lovely old graveyard to have a walk around. Angela Briggs said: “I saw the attached grave of a gentleman, presumably a sailor, who was lost to Icelandic waters in 1926 and wondered if there was still family of his in your area and if you might like to find out and pass on the photograph?”

Does anyone recognise the name, Henry Edwin Coe (Harry), who was born in 1896 and died in 1926. The simple cross also reads: “Great Yarmouth, England as his birthplace and Icelandic Waters” where he died.
