Mr. Albert Palmer

Albert Palmer of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, was traveling aboard Lusitania with his wife Annie and his children Edgar, Olive, and Albert, Jr. The entire family was lost in the Lusitania sinking. Colin Simpson's book erroneously describes the Palmers as being transfers from the Queen Margaret. the transfers the morning Lusitania sailed were from the Cameronia, not Queen Margaret, and the Palmer family had always intended to sail aboard Lusitania and were not transfers. Per the list of interments at Cobh, Master Albert Palmer was body #179, age 6 months, buried with Mrs. Annie Palmer in Common Grave B; Master Edgar Palmer was body #184, age 7 years, buried Common Grave B; Mrs. Annie Palmer was body #179, age 33 years, Common Grave B.
