Ed Cummings

Very sad to hear of the passing of Ed a much respected historian and author. Ed and his team were responsible for one of the most spectacular amateur underwater projects documenting the loss and partial excavation of the East Indiaman Earl of Abergavenny the remains of which lay in Weymouth bay. A good friend he was always on hand to share his vast knowledge and the Deeper Dorset wreck database would not be what it is without his support and input. The picture is from a couple of years back and shows myself right and Ed having a break as we worked our way through hundreds of shipwreck records.

  1. Ed was a lovely man. I always looked forward to ctaching up with him to find out about his latest project which he was always so committed to. Always eager to help with a smile.
