The memorial was sponsored by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Co. Ltd. The monument was originally situated in St Barnabas' Church, Douglas until November 1969, when it was relocated to the Steam Packet Headquarters, due to St Barnabas' Church being demolished. Following the re-siting of the window, the varnished wooden plaque measuring 2.75" x 31.5" was situated immediately below the window.
