Memorial restored with quirks

The memorial to Joseph Bell, chief engineer of the Titanic, is being restored in Cumbria.

Bob Wellington, who is responsible for restoring the memorial has discovered some quirks but plans to keep them:

'We've got "grater love hath no man" and it should be greater with an "e" and it's just the "ater" and we've got the foundering of the vessel where it should be "floundering" but they just accepted it at the time and let it go which I find very unique.'

– Bob Wellington, Cumbria

Joseph Bell went down with the ship and his remains were never recovered.
