Falconer, Stephen, Seaman R.N.V.R.

He died at sea aged 40 on the 22nd of October 1918 of pneumonia as a passenger aboard the S.S. Cufic.
He is described as a "Distressed British Seaman Paseneger", Boatswain, S.S. Energie. Residence at 2 Ann Street, Arbroath.

So either his vessel was sunk and he was being transported home or he was ill already. Perhaps his pneumonia was a result of being in the sea for a length of time?
After a bit of googling I found this: ENERGY, sailing vessel, 89grt, 15 September 1918, 18 miles E by N from Codling LV, captured by submarine, sunk by gunfire.

I've just looked at the Eastern Forfarshire directory and ARBROATH year book for 1922 and under the pages on Arbroath Churches it says

EAST U F CHURCH : Minister Rev T S Anderson, 1 Springfield Terrace etc but no address shown for the Church

But

HIGH STREET U F CHURCH : Minister Rev James Howat, Lochshade . colleague and successorRev John Tweedie , High St Manse , albert street arbroath and no address shown for the church


Just an idea and a thought or is East U F Church a different church to the High St UF church that is nowadays called the Free Church at the bottom of the arbroath high street ??
