Does anyone know if there are records available for fisherman who died at sea?

I dont know, but I know that I never found Uncle Harrys death in the GRO Index. He was a merchant seaman and died when his ship, the Castlereagh went down off the Needles in 1925.

You could possibly try and find out more from Lloyds of London??

There are records available - where to look and what you might find depends on when the death occurred, which you don't mention.

Best place to start is TNA's web-site and their research guides. Try this

and follow the links
