English Erect Cloister For “Titanic” Hero

Near the parish church at Godalming, a little market town on the banks of the Wey, not far from London, a cloister has been built to the memory of Jack Phillips, a wireless operator of the “Titanic,” who died at his instrument while flashing “S O S” calls out from the sinking liner.

The secluded spot occupies a plot 80 ft. square and is surrounded on three sides by an arcade. In the middle of the grounds, which is a veritable garden, is an octagonal lily pond.

Inlaid in the wall beside the water is a carved memorial tablet.
