Casualties





Casualties among United States Naval Personnel
based in  Ireland,
1917 to 1918


Clonmel Graveyard, Cobh, (formerly Queenstown), Co.Cork

This list is a conservative estimate of losses of US Naval personnel based in Ireland during World War One. The casualties are mainly based on the postwar publication Officers and Enlisted Men of the United States Naval Service Who Died During the World War. This book was published by the Department of the Navy in 1920. That publication is limited in that deaths after November 11, 1918, are not included.

This  was the the time of the second, and most fatal wave of the so-called Spanish Flu pandemic. There were still United States naval personnel based in Cork, Ireland, until July 1919. There may be many victims not included in this list.

One particularly ironic post-war death was that of Boatswain Gibson.  He  died in a loading accident, on board the USS Malang, at Deepwater Quay, Queenstown, on January 4th 1919. He had previously survived the torpedoing and sinking of USS Jacob Jones, on December 6th, 1917.

Some remains,such as some those lost in action, were not recovered. Those  USS Manley victims recovered, appear to have been immediately shipped home to the USA.

The remainder were interred, mainly, in the Old graveyard in Queenstown (Cobh) - known as Clonmel, Old Graveyard. This is the graveyard where many of the Lusitania victims lie. It also contains the graves of many Royal Navy personnel.

In November, 1919. The US Naval vessel USS Yankton (a hired steam yacht), visited Queenstown. Under the direction of Dr Clarke Andrew, the remains of US personnel interred in Clonmel Old Graveyard, were exhumed. These bodies were then transported back to the USA for re-burial. In 1919. In total, thirty two bodies of US servicemen were taken from Ireland, and re-interred in the USA.
