I am a writer and I am researching life in Tilbury for a TV pilot script about the Merchant Navy. I have a personal interest. My father was a Merchant Navy officer – a marine engineer. He worked for OCL – a subsidiary of P and O for 30 years and his home port was Tilbury. I often visited the town and stayed at the Stella Maris Seaman’s hotel while his ship was in port. I was wondering if anyone had information about this place. I have looked on this website but there is no information.
I was wondering could anyone kindly point me in the right direction please? I would be grateful for anything you could provide. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
