The Friends of HMS Conway was formed in 1996 to preserve the memory of the training school ship HMS Conway. Since then we have acquired and safeguarded a huge number of Conway artefacts, completed several major projects, organised numerous displays of Conway memorabilia and created beautiful memorial windows at each of the ship’s three moorings. The jewel in our crown is the wonderful memorial chapel and museum in Birkenhead Priory’s Scriptorium where we hold memorial services every year.

There is more to do, particularly to ensure everything survives in perpetuity. You can become part of our story. To make a donation click here knowing that every penny received helps us complete new projects and safeguard what we’ve already achieved. All our work is undertaken by volunteers and if you are close to Merseyside and could spare some time to get actively involved please email us.
