Out of Grimsby



This book is written by the third Alf May of Grimsby, telling the story of each generation as they lived and worked in the trade of trawl fishing. The author tells the story of his family from 1882 to 1932 – recounting the tragic loss of both his father and grandfather, and the changes in commercial fishing from sail to steam power.

A beautifully written story, it depicts the typical life of any fisher family of the era. It serves to impress upon the reader, the toil of many men as they provide our island with fresh fish.
